Not really. If it's Slavic name, noun has to be something bit more "epic", and based on words such as Love,God,World, Rule-over-other-people .
For example, Vladimir means "Peaceful ruler" or "Rules in peace" or even "Ruler of the World"
Many names are also Greek and Latin-based.
I'm not talking about etymology of already existing names - names that have been historically established as names - but about parents being like "Oh, our daughter was born in spring, let's name her >Весна<", "Oh, isn't our child a ray os sunshine!, so why not give the name Sun!", while there has been no instances of these things being used as names, historically. Basically, I was wondering if parents, instead of choosing an already existing name, are allowed to come up with a name on their own.
Well, it's not forbidden by law, if that's what you mean, but it's a rather uncommon occurrence. Most people choose one of the existing names.
I believe the authorities can refuse to register some insanely weird name (like an unpronounceable cluster of letters), but something like "Весна" shouldn't be too much of a problem.
