    Diminutive Name Forms

    Does anyone know the diminutive form of Sasha (aka Katya becomes Katyusha and so on)?

    Also, would dear soldiers be "Soldatyushi" or "Soldatyushki?"

    Finally, is Sergei a diminutive form or fine by itself?

    I know, this is completely ridiculous.

    Sasha is the diminutive of Aleksander, you could also say Sashenka I guess...

    Sergei is not a dimiutive, Seryozha (Серёжа) is

    Sergei, Seryozha
    ...Серёжка, Серёженька, Серёжечка;
    Серёга, Серый
