    Have never heard this name nowadays in Ukraine, even in most authentic regions like West. Ukraine. I've heard it once while reading Shevchenko or Ivan Franko works .

    But she comes from the US and the weird names the diaspora folks give their children don't really count. You see, in a diaspora your ideas about your culture kinda freeze in time-space continuum, they're no longer on the same wavelength with your country of origin. A diaspora is always an ugly parody of your country of origin from long ago.

    She is Ukrainian. But you know what, most everybody just calls her exactly that, Solomia.

    Actually, you can alter this name in any way your fantasy can go to Whether, Мія, or Соля

    However, the literary right variant would be Соломійка. You can use it for both little girl or elder woman. It's just a kind informal name
