    Never heard of Kristovi. That's not a Russian name.

    No, I don't know, but I know Mary, you'll have to introduce us sometime.

    Anyway
    Julia in Russian is Юлия so Julian is probably Юлиян. Tanya is a Russian name, short for Tat'yana
    Татьяна - Таня

    It's Юлиан but I think this name is rather rare in Russia.

    I believe it isn't so in other Slavic-speaking countries? I know a Czech called Julian.

    The most famous russian Julian is Юлиан Семенов, the author of "Семнадцать мгновений весны":

    Штирлиц (the main character of "Семнадцать мгновений весны") is one of the most popular heroes of russian anecdotes.

    You have a little false friend there, Denis. Prefer "joke" to "anecdote".
    Shtirlitz stories are *fictional* and *funny* (or intended to be). Joke is better than anecdote there.
