    Люся - это Людмила.

    А Леся - это Олеся, а не Елена.

    And it's usually Ленка, not Еленка.
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    Thx all! Yelena is Maria Sharapova's mother's name btw lol! That's why I was asking. lol! If Maria had any brothers or sisters, you'd be hearing more from me about their names too! Unfortunately she doesn't have any. lol!


    lol! Yes I know Yelena and Elena are the same. That's what I meant by using "or."
