    Excuse me but if you've never heard anyone in Russia use it as diminutive that doesn't necessarily mean that it's not used at all. I agree that most Olegs would take it as an insult if addressed by male but if some Oleg's g/f called him "Olya" he wouldn't be offended, IMO

    You are absolutely right. Canadian sources won't do. Let's better apply for information to shcolar's Petrovski dictionary:

    Right, but it most probably does mean that is is a very rare usage, and hardly can be recommended to a foreign learner of Russian.

    Is it because of the Marines or the security clearance? Or both?
