Names of Russian women

Author: Elena Ivanova

How should you call your beloved and your mother-in-law?

At that moment the fashion for everything ancient, connected with the noble culture which had been denied by the communists, came back. That is why many Russian women (which were new-born babies then) got such popular in the 19th century names, as Praskovia, Sofia, Elizaveta. Even for Russians they sound unusual, perhaps only Elizaveta still remains a popular name. At the beginning of the 2000 a growing number of girls in Russia got a name Anastasia. Before it was only in the top ten, the last ten years it is one of the three most popular names. The affectionate form of this name sounds like "Nastya". You may conduct an experiment: scream "Nastya!" on any crowded street, for certain several Russian women of different age will turn around.

And since the 2010, there are also such names inside the top ten as Maria, Anna, Ksenia, Polina, Viktoria.

When you talk to your woman, please, check out what affectionate name she prefers. For example. Maria is called "Masha" or "Mashenka" by her friends, Anna - "Anya" or "Anuta", Ksenia - "Ksusha". But after 45 and in particular after 50 the majority of Russian women prefer to be called by name and patronymic. It will be a mistake to call a mother-in-law even if she looks very young by name. Of course, you will be forgiven for you are a foreigner who may not know the Russian traditions. But the right strategy will be to find out how to pronounce a name and a patronymic of the future mother-in-law and father-in-law beforehand. It needs some training, given that you won’t manage to pronounce, for example "Elizaveta Vyacheslavovna" or "Tatyana Kostantinovna" at once, but it will let your future relatives see that you are a serious person and that you are attentive to important things.

If you happen to talk to Russian officials, bear in mind that irrespective of age the most appropriate way to call both men and women is by name and patronymic.
