    My friend is from Southern Russia, her last name is Petrova. Is this unusual for living in Southern Russia?

    It's the most typical name for the whole Russia.

    It is absolutely typical for the whole Russia. I only said that there are all kinds of surnames in that region, including both typical Russian ones and less typical Russian, closer to Ukraininan, but not un-Russian of course.

    I understand. Yes I know many Russian people whose last names are Petrov/Petrova. What are some Ukrainian last names that you know of that don't end in -enko?

    Сердюк, Димарчук, Калинчук... That type of names for example. Also last names that are really a sentence - Непейпиво, Непейвода, Махниборода, Убейконь...

    Generally speaking, Russian names end -ов, -ев, -ёв, -ин, -ын, -ий, -ый. Names with other endings are likely to be foriegn (e.g. Ukraine, or something else).
    Now, if I don't say this, someone is gonna reply with with a Russian name that doensn't have these endings. I SAID GENERALLY SPEAKING. I didn;t say "all russian names end...." OK
    Ukrainian names do have some characteristic ending e.g. -ов, -ев, -ьов, -ич, -нко, but there are also loads and loads of names that don't fit into these catogories.

    I would guess that Дейна isn't Russian.

    Дейна is not a Russian name. That I had known before. I suppose it is Ukrainian. Is this right?

    Дейна is a Bulgarian first name. It is also the transliteration for Irish name Dana (Americans pronounce it дейна).

    It is also a last name, but i'm not sure of its origin...

    Yes, it is a last name. It's my last name. I just don't know of the origin also. My friend Galya says that it's Ukrainian. Maybe this is true?

    Or maybe Galya is a liar?

    Both in Russia and Ukraine there are such surnames as Дейнеко, Дайнеко, Дейнека... I am not sure of their origin and meaning. Maybe that can help if you research them in the internet.
