    Что значит "not common"? Из твоих слов можно понять, что это имя в России есть, но оно просто не распространено. Такого имени просто нет.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    I repeat:
    "There is such a foreign name, Mashenika: 1,260 hits on Google for Mashenika but only a few for Машеника(Cyrillic for Mashenika). It is not common in Russia."

    Ob'asnyayu po-russki:
    Eto znachit chto imya Машеника v Rossii pochti ne upotreblyaetsa. Ya nashel vsevo lish neskol'ko ssilok na Google, gde eto imya, Машеника, mozhno uvidet'. No dovol'no mnogo (1260) ssilok na imya Mashenika (latinskimi bukvami).

    Why is it so difficult to understand?
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    Да нет такого имени, а ссылки в Гугле на него появляются после таких аот дурацких дисскусий.
    Если кого-то в Америке зовут Tanya (Танья), это же не значит, что есть такое иностранное имя Танья, которое "is not common in Russia".

    If you find something in Google it doesn't mean this something is right. I hope you are not a 5-10 old child to get it. As a matter of fact the Internet is VERY questionable source of information.
    If I make 100 web pages with "Robret" instead of "Robert", and then searching robots index it, it doesn't make the name Robert "more common" and Robret "less common".

    Оно не "почти" не употребляется, а просто - НЕ УПОТРЕБЛЯЕТСЯ. Его НЕТ.

    Ссылки в в Гугле появляются даже не столько от "дурацких дискуссий", сколько от того, что некоторые личности не в состоянии грамотно написать слово "мошенника" - род.падеж от слова "мошенник".

    А что касается "Mashenika", то как ещё можно передать латинскими буквами мягкий "Н" в слове "Машенька"? Что "Mashenka", что "Mashen'ka" - всё равно выходит: "Машенка". Вот и выкручивается народ...

    ЗЫ. А в Америке есть ещё имя "Машона". Теннисистка есть даже такая - Mashona Washington.
    Could you please occasionally correct my stupid errors!

    Интересно звучит уменьшительное от этого имени.

    Don't worry about saying, "There is not this name." People understand what you're saying. Technically it's grammatically correct, but it does sound awkward. But people understand what you were saying, which is the most important thing. You could say, "There isn't this name in Russian." If you contract "is not" to "isn't," it doesn't sound as awkward. Or better yet, "This name isn't Russian" or "This name doesn't exist in Russian."

    lol! Yeah, there's a tennis player named Mashona Washington, but she's not as good a tennis player, not Russian, and nowhere near as pretty as Maria Sharapova! :P

    btw, Masha is in the finals of another Grand Slam tonight, since 2004 when she won Wimbledon!

    Sharapova is really pretty in comparision with almost all another tennis player. But she has a strong character and plays good tennis as well.

    The final match Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs. Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL) begins tonight 1:00 CET (3:00 MSK).



    МАША ВПЕРЁД!!!

    He meant, "in comparison to every other girl who's ever lived"

    You are right. There is a couple (or a little bit more) of prettier models in the world. But they can't play tennis at all. But OK... I'm not going to discuss any more. This all is just a matter of taste and nothing more.
