    Татјана

    Здравствуйте ,
    My sister's name is Tatjana, we all call her Tanja. I know that Tatjana is Russian name, but does everyone know something more about this name?

    Спасибо
    best regards

    Here what the Dictionary of Russian Names says about it:
    ТАТЬЯНА, -ы, ж.; стар. Татиана, -ы.
    Производные: Татьянка; Таня; Танюха; Танюша; Танюра; Танюся; Танюта; Тата; Татуля; Татуня; Татуся; Туся; Таша.
    [От лат. Tatius — имя сабинского царя или от греч. tatto — устанавливать, определять, назначать.]
    †25 янв., 3 окт.
    If you believe that a name can have an influence on person's character and fate, you'd probably find this article interesting: "Тайна имени Татьяна"
    Татьяна упряма, властна, целеустремленна, не терпит возражений, порой деспотична. Это очень эмоциональный, артистичный человек с огромным обаянием. Эгоцентрична, не сентиментальна.
    Does you sister fit this definition?

    zdravo Невена,
    Can I ask you what these sentences mean?

    "Белград - один из древнейших городов Европы, история которого продолжается полных 7000 лет. В бурном прошлом, Белград завоевывало 40 армий, и 38 раз он был отстроен заново из пепла."

    hvala lepa

    Buso this is translation:
    Belgrade is one of the oldest European cities, whose history has lasted for more than 7000 years. During its and tumultuous history, Belgrade has been conquered by 40 armies, and 38 times it has been raised up from the ashes.

    I would like to thank everybody on their posts

    Dhz, Tatiana is not a Greek name, it is a Slavic name. Sorry, I don’t know about its origin.

    I didn't say it's Greek, I said it came from Greek language (maybe ancient Greek, I don't know). That's what I've read, as we say "за что купил, за то и продаю" =)

    I understood, but as I know the name Tatiana has no Greek roots. They are Greek women with this name today, but its origin is Slavic.

    This name has no Slavic roots either. The only word that is close to it is obsolete word "тать". But the meaning of this word is not good and it hardly has any relation to the name.

    Oh, come on, let's settle it down. If you all had been more attentive, you would have found that Triton has told us some legible information for this name. Look at the post of his.

    Rtyom, if you had been more attentive, you would have found that I've responsed to Греческо statement that "its origin is Slavic". Triton's post is good but it's just versions. One guess is as good as another's.

    I didn't mean you're not right or something. I pointed humbly at the things written posts ago.

    It's not worth arguing...

    Hm, all this is kinda tricky... But then maybe it was really the female form of the Latin name Tatius just as the dictionary tells.

    Греческо, is there a word like "tatto" in Greek?

    Btw, does anybody know where had St. Tatiana lived? Greece?

    No, there is not a word like ''tatto'' in Greek. What similar to this comes to my mind is ''tafto'' which is a form of the word 'this' in ancient Greek.

    And in Greek orthodox tradition there is no ST. Tatiana, and I don't think it is in Russian either.

    What I was quite sure about was she was not Greek. The name's origin must be Latin then .

    Then the name is most probably of Latin origin...
