What kind of awesome name is Bled anyway?

Here I am in a little country called Slovenia; 10 travel points if you know the capital is Ljubljana (5 more if you could spell it).  The city is in a valley surrounded by mountains and there is a castle right in the middle and a river running through.  It is pretty idyllic. The cute part is that all of the signs are both in Slovene and in English but the English tends to have words missing or adorable spelling mistakes.  In addition, a lot of the people I have talked to have at least a smattering of English, which is nice.
