Most probably your nick was derived from from    свѧтъ (svętu) or свѩтъ (svjętu) – saint and princley ending сла́въ. First person with such name was Grand Prince of Rus' Svyatoslav (His name is recorded in Greek as: Σφενδοσθλάβος (sfenthoslavos) OCS: Свѧтосла́въ И́горевичь) It is first Slavic name among Princes of  Rus'. It was derived from names of his Grand-Uncle and Grandfather Ольгъ and Рю́рикъ (Helgi and Hrorekr) (Saint and Glorius, Glorious mighty). First women with such name was sister of Danish king Cnut the Great, their mother was Polish.

Yeah, I know, it was Swiatoslava  :)  As for Sviatoslav I of Kiev, he was not the first well-known person with such name (c. 942 – March 972), actually it was <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svatopluk_I">Svätopluk I</a> – the date of his born is unknown, but he died in 894. Then we also know <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swietopelk_II,_Duke_of_Pomerania">Swietopelk II, Duke of Pomerania</a> (1190/1200 – 11 January 1266).
