Etymology of the name VASILKA.
Meaning of the baby name VASILKA.

  

VASILKA (Василка).  Bulgarian name meaning "queenly."  It is a feminine form of Slavic Vasil ("kingly").

    "Thou rememberest the good sister who died here three years ago?  The Baba says her spirit came last night to give the village warning."
    "Ah, Vasilka, that could not be," the man said, stopping his work.  "The good nun is in Paradise.  Only evil spirits stay on earth after death."
    His wife came closer and spoke in a whisper.  "It is true.   But the priest had the body dug up.  It looks just as when it was buried—except that the face is frowning.  And thou knowest, Ivan, that the spirit stays on earth till it is released by the body's decay.  It must have been the sister's ghost that the Baba saw.  Oh, I am afraid!"  And she laid her head on her husband's broad shoulder. (Munsey's Magazine, v.17, 1897)
