Vadim Kazarinov Says:


Vadim is a very masculine name for a boy. Not surprisingly, three letters with a value of 1 in this first name make him strong, authoritarian, determined, masculine and independent; but equally self-centred and full of himself. Ambitious, active, creative and dynamic; he is often brimming over with energy, ideas and plans.
Very unique name! Herkunft unklar, vielleicht aus Skandinavien nach Russland gekommen.
