Russian Names

Most Russian traditional given names have really cool nicknames (Sasha, Misha, Katya) and native English speakers are very taken with them (including, apparently, US President Barack Obama, whose daughter is named Sasha). Today, trendy Russian parents are choosing English names for their children, or Russian names that are easy to understand and pronounce in English. Our Russian baby names list contains popularity information, pronunciations and accurate origin and meanings data along with historical tidbits and unique pop culture references for each baby name. If you’re looking to honor your heritage, peruse our collection of Russian names for boys and girls.
