    names

    Bob = Боб = bean
    Bobby = Бобы = beans
    Carmen = Кармен = pocket
    Scott = Скот = cattle

    Valery is definitely a woman's name in English, but it is a man's name in Russian

    that's not completly true, Valery is woman' name in Russian too, Валерий for a man and Валерия(Лера) for a woman. also Валера is short of Валерий and Валерия.
