    He, Daniela is female. Danila is male. In my study group we have a student with name Danila. We call him Danil.
    By the way, if such name as Danilla (with two "l") exist then it would be female rather than male.

    Mike said Daniila, Даниила, with two I's, not two L's.

    Даниила. Never heard. In any case in conversations her name will be shortened to Дана.

    Just wondering, since there is no "H" in Russian, do Russians find it hard to say "h"? (By the way, that's the English letter 'h', not Russian 'n')

    My name is Lisa and I still prefer to be called (and spell my name) Лиса in Russian instead of Лиза.Even if it does'nt make sense to anyone.

    what about our vowels, like "i" in "hit," "u" in "up," or "a" in "cake"? Is it hard for them to say these?
    Yay! I broke 200 posts!

    hit might be difficult.

    The sound in up is like the sound of an unstressed "а", isn't it?

    The "a" in cake is not a vowel, it's a diphtongue that could be rendered as "ей". Shouldn't be so difficult. Doesn't the comparative ending "ее" sound like this?

    The sound of the 'u' in up is not translatable into Russian. You could get away with using a short 'a' sound if you were talking quickly.
