Beautiful Russian Female Names
Russian names enjoy a specific interest outside their own country. Many brief and affectionate appeals in their homeland have become full names abroad. Very "Russian," according to foreigners, the names Natasha, Tanya, and Sasha now sound quite often with an American or Brazilian accent. But in Russia itself, at present, they prefer to adhere to centuries-old traditions - they take Christian or Slavic names, although fashion trends are here too.
Modern Russian female names include not only Orthodox, but also others - Catholic, Slavic, Roman. Although before the baptism of Russia, the people did not have full names, everyone got by with nicknames. Ancient Russian names most often represented a description of the most striking features of its owner.
They gave them to a girl when she became a teenager, or instead for that time - suitable for future marriage. And they did not always become a girl's decoration. Sometimes this only emphasized her shortcomings or the order of birth. Now, of course, such names are not used at all, and preference is given to sonorous, beautiful Slavic names - Lyubava, Lada, Bogdan, Milena.
New cute Russian female names. Currently, the most common among Russian female names are Orthodox names. They are the ones who occupy the first lines of the popularity rating among Russian titles, as well as the edges of the score of beautiful female names. Anastasia, Catherine, Maria and Sofia firmly hold the upper positions, but also the less common, and sometimes even forgotten over the past 50 years names - Angelina, Veronika, Varvara and others are already appearing.
An enormous variety of beautiful Russian women's names can be found in cities with a population of over one million people, where various cultures come into contact. It is here that the difference between the ultra-modern and the very ancient name is least noticeable. Everything seems so new that sometimes you don't understand - it is a tribute to fashion or an already established tendency to return to antiquity.

The name Christina was used in Catholic Europe, and its Orthodox counterpart (Christina) is considered to be a relic of past centuries in Russia and is rarely found. Currently, he has a chance - the European colleague, Christina, has begun to win Russian hearts. The name is Alice of German origin, and now it is already in the 10th most popular.
