Meaning of the baby name RADKA.


RADKA.  Norwegian name derived from Teutonic rad, meaning "counsel."  Cognate with the Slavic rada/rade "counsel."

RADKA (Радка).  Feminine form of Slavic Radko (q.v.), from Slavic rad, meaning "joy."  Usage: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia.

    Radka smiled a little palely as they climbed the stairs.
    "This time I do feel shaky," she said, "and we are going to talk about me."
    Nedejda's fingers caught Radka's.  "What is it?" she implored.  "Please tell me quickly now you've had your tea."
    Radka laughed.  "I will, now you've had yours."
    She drew Nedejda through the open door out into the quiet and perfume of the garden, which, even in April, flowered in heavy sweetness.  Looking around at its loveliness, she drew a deep breath.
    "I've got to go, Nedejda," her voice was a little unsteady; "I can get the Varna boat to-morrow night."
    The color drenched out of Nedejda's face, but she stood silent, waiting for the rest. (St. Nicholas, vol. 43, 1916)
