The Russian language is the most utilized among the languages influenced by the Slavic.

Unlike the English alphabet, Russia uses thirty and more, well basically thirty-three letters for their vocabulary to be completed. The different form and style of lettering were influenced by Cyril and the other is Methodius, who were brothers and both were saints. Created by them, this style of inscription is in Cyrillic form. Their mother gave birth to them in Thessaloniki. Genuinely, this composition of letters were once a complete set of forty-three scripts, where twenty-four originated in Greeks.

THIS IS THAT…

The very interesting part of learning Russian names were the discovery that some of the letters have corresponding letters that will be able to teach you on how to read Russian. This may seem a little vague though, but I will give you an example.

Their letter X means H

B will be V

H is equivalent to N

The P will be R

C stands for S

And Y to U

An example is this:

The name ???? translated to ZINA. Notice the third letter, the H in the ???? is equivalent to the N in ZINA.

OTHER EXAMPLE OF THIS NAMES ARE:

??????? – VARINKA

?????? – YULIANA

??????? – RADINKA

R??????? – ANZHELA

While examples of C to S are names like:

????? that is translated to SVETA. Note that the C in ????? translates to S in SVETA.

?????- SOFIYA

????- SONYA

?????- SALVA

                P that is basically an R

????- VERA

????-VARYA

                The B to V

???????- VARINKA

???????- VARUSHKA

???????- VARVARA

Notice that the first word in this name is letter B and when translated to English, this letter will eventually change to letter V.

RICH IN CONSONANT                   

Another noticeable to the Russian words are the increase of use consonants than of the vowel letters.

Unlike the words written in English, the letters that composes the Russian words are very distinct due to the excessive use of consonants. If you are not a born Russian, you will surely have a difficult time articulating and reading the words written in that language, with the excessive consonant letters aligning in a word.

THE STRESS

The role of stressing the words spoken is very vital, for it brings an implication to the word verbalized. To be a true blue Russian, you must efficiently know the placement of the stress in different words. When a stress is situate in an incorrect position, it may connotes bizarre meaning.

Words written in Russian doesn’t have obvious stress or marks, so we must be keen enough to understand and familiarize each word in order to be effective.

The O will be A – When there is a stress to a word, the letter O will be uttered as an O. On the other hand, if there is an absence of stress, the O will be articulated as schwa or A.

COMMUNICATION

The uniqueness of being a Russian is that they have various manner of communicating your feeling to the other person. The very well-known practice that they have is incorporating some tiny suffixes to someone’s name. A practice that were usually present when their father or their mom warmly call their kids. This can be present also when you call someone very important or dear to you, like your best friend.

Masha or Maria in English can be change into Mashenka or the name Olya, which is Olga in English translation can be Olechka. But this practice is ordinarily for the girls, who adore adding decoration and ornaments to their friends name.

WHEN FORMING A NICKNAME

Also a practice that made Russians stand out from other culture and race are their tradition of making pet names for someone as precious as their identity. Usually, to some other people living in other countries, with their own culture and upbringing, the naming and giving of pet names to someone, may it be their friends or relatives isn’t a big deal. You can call each other based on the pet names you wanted to give or used for them. But if you are a Russian, it is a custom that if you will be giving a pet name for someone, especially if it is a family member or a friend, you must be mindful. If possible, make that pet name of your friend or relative exclusive to only both of you. When you and your friend are with other people, never used that pet name during a conversation, this may

THEIR WAY

Before saying or introducing their name, Russians have proper more outlined way of greeting other people. Unlike the Americans, Russians have ways of using and adding some words to make their phrases formal or informal, based on the person they are talking to.

Their way of talking and starting a conversation usually begins with the phrase or a question, asking them of how they are.

Thou or you will be used if you are talking to someone, a way of communicating to them not in a formal way.

You, the other courteous version will be use when talking to someone formally.

THE WAY TO IDENTIFY

In order for them to identify the gender of the person even without meeting them, they would add something to the person’s name with regards to its sex. The female population, basically, will have an “a” attached to their given names and the three letter “ova” at the ending of their family names.

BASED ON THEIR FATHERS

Since the people in Russia usually have two names, the first one which is long, as stated above, and the second one that is driven out from the dad’s given names.

If a woman’s father’s name was Ivan, then her other name would be Ivanovna. The “ovna” in the final part of the name is for the female gender, while the “ovich” will be for the male.

Russian names are quite unique that some would choose the English equivalent to name their own children. If you want to name your children the Russian way, you might be able to learn a thing or two from this article.
