    Krivda

    My mother's maiden name is Krivda. My grandfather use to say it was Russian in origin. His parents migrated to America in the 1880's from Slovakia. I am wondering if it is Russian and what part of Russia it might have come from. Thank you in advance.
    I have things to do, people to see, places to visit and stories to tell.

    Re: Krivda

    I have met this name only in russian tales. It is the opposite word of Pravda (truth). So, Krivda means a lie.
    Maybe there are another meaning of it, but in russian tales it is so.

    Разговорный вариант:
    - Это правда!
    - Нет! Не правда, а кривда!

    "Кривда" - скорее всего, от "кривой".

    http://ushdict.narod.ru/139/w41922.htm
    КРИВДА, кривды, мн. нет, ж. (обл. и нар.-поэт.). Неправда, ложь; противоп. правда. Сказка о правде и кривде. Кривдой жить.

    Одна из сказок (их много в интернете)
    http://lukoshko.net/rus/rus17.shtml
    "Правда и Кривда"
