    Ray
    I mean that it is better to not translate your name, because any russian would not understand it
    Just be Ray. Или Рэй по-русски.

    Only Svetlana in Russian likes your name in Enlgish.
    Svet - light. So, Svetlana can be translated as "light".

    Ray, there is no need translating names into Russian. A lot of Russians names have Greek, Latin, Jewish or German origin and they mean nothing to most people.
    The slavic-origin names have meaning. If you are interesting about the closest Russian name with the same meaning like yours so... There is a female name Svetlana which has the root "svet" - light.

    Светлана is the full name. Света is the short name. All other forms are pet names.

    Sveta is a diminutive form for Svetlana. Kinda "kitty" is a diminutive form for "cat", "doggy" - for "dog". The word structure in Indo-European languages is [prefix]-root-[suffix]-[ending]. The root of words Svetlana and Sveta is "svet" - light. So Svetlana/Sveta means something like "(she is) light/bright".
    Got it?

    By the way. Does the ending "-лана" in Светлана mean anything?
    There is also a female name "Лана" in Russian.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I don't know russian name "Лана". Only "Лада".
    Also I don't know what is "-лана" means. I think that it means nothing.

    Your name is Рей or Рэй in Russian. Светлана is not your name.

    Лада is the name of a car yes. But it took it's name from some Ukrainian pagan godess called Лада apparently.

    Why only Slavic? It's the Martian pagan goddess of harmony. Отсюда -- квафунл-бойнк-бойнк-кварпппппп, бумбал-бумф-капопф.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.
