    That's because you're a TERRORIST, you evil man. You're secretly a Canadian spy, aren't you? Traitor! Infiltrator! Collaborator!

    Another very common American name that just makes you think of farms and crops and little towns and so on is Абдулла. And a good American dairy maid's name is Джалила.

    This is true. I am from a GOOD GODFEARING MIDWESTERN FARMING TOWN and I can confirm this. There are also a lot of boys named Мустафа and Хассан.

    This is the second studpidest thing them foreign мазафаказ say about Russia, right alongside with that meaningless phrase nazdrove, which no one says in Russia when drinking. We don't have girls called Nikita's in Russia, it's a ferkin boy's name. Please bemuehen Sie sich das zu remember.

    I am taken aback!

    You know, there actually are quite a few Hassans around here. Not too many of them are dairy farmers, though.

    Please excuse me Pravit I don't know what I was thinking! Please please PLEASE forgive me! Here, forget me last post, let me have a do-over

    What! Excuse me while I re-fasten my corset which has sprung open at my astonishment of seeing such a thing! Surely you know that there are hardly any Abdul-Rahims, Mustafas, or Hassans in godfearing Midwestern towns? I'm an AMERICAN, dammit, and I've never met anyone named Abdul-Rahim in all my 16 years on earth! Why, you must be a terrorist! Collaborationist! Infiltrator! Sympathizer! Glory to the American military-organ!

    My favorite name for a boy is Трактор or Ким and my favorite name for a girl is probably Пятилетка.
    Well, Pravit, just dont bring those kids back to the US or the poor boys will be running around, "Hi, Im Tractor." or "Hi, Im Kim!" and the girl will go insane from anguish or abbreviate to Patty or something.

    My favorite male name is Дмитрий.
    My favorite female name is Оксана.

    Клим/Klim (from The Life of Klim Samgin by Maxim Gorky)
    and
    Мартын/Martyn (from Nabokov's Deed) for males.

    Елена/Yelena is the best female name.

    I have a friend from Russia and I really like her name:

    Зоя - Zoya (means life)

    I think this is a really pretty name, and its a little more rare.

    I find this name more than strange - Zoya -> Soya -> soya beans.... I can't help laughing when I hear it.

    It's common knowledge that the most beautiful names are Михрюткин Стратон Стратылатыч and Пелагея Хавроньевна Доезжай-Недоедишь.
