    Does SP mean spelling? If so, the spelling is correct.

    Nastya_Love, you pretty much put every Russian boy's name in there!

    My favorite Russian name of all time has gotta be Elena (w/ Russian pronunciation). It just sounds the coolest!

    Elizaveta(My cousins name)

    I have to agree with you Nastya, that's one of my favourites. Was considering changing my name to it at one point (I cannot convey how much I hate my name. And to think my parents passed Kataryn over for the mere, common and nasty, Louise. Icky!!

    Anyway, how is it spelt in Cyrillic? It's the i I can't figure out. Is it Eлизавета (first time I got cyrillic to work, whooooooooooooooo!)? Doesn't look right, but I know nothing.

    Also, Dounetchka (dim. of Eudoxia I think) has been a great love of mine since reading Crime and Punishment (in English). No idea how that would be spelt though!
    Anyone in Taiwan for Russian language exchange?

    Favorite names.....

    My favorites are:

    Men -- Andrei (though I have a friend who writes me from Russia/Ukraine border, and his name is always spelled Andrey???)

    Women -- Nikita

    Also, I had a great-grandfather who lived on the Black Sea; his name was always spelled Jakob. I've always been confused by that, because Jakob is a German spelling...and only some of my family from that area was German.

    Can anyone help me with my G. Grandfather's name?

    Thank you!!

    У меня подруга из Польши. Её брата зовут "Jakub", а его кличка "Kuba".

    Ещё у неё дядя которого зовут "Piotr". Это польская версия имени Петр?

    Nikita is man's name actually. You'll never meet a woman with such name in Russia.

    Not sure what kind of help you meant here, but if Jacob is a German spelling then the Russian transliteration is Якоб. The closest to it Russian name is Яков, so if he is originally from Russia that could be his name.

    I like Sasha for girls and Maxim & Andrei for guys.

    I thought of another one for girls: Ульяна

    Которые ты забываешь поливать.
    Тебя не радуют весна и пение птах,
    Ведь снова ты должна любовь свою порвать,
    Ведь снова ты должна...

    Nastya, for one of your favorite girl names you wrote this: Nadezhia

    I believe it is spelled Nadezhda. Right? Unless this is a name I've never seen before

    To astarz41: I like the name sasha too
