“I already missed you,” and “I already miss you” - Which sentence is correct


Many Russian names are cool and cute names even we hate them in war with Ukraine. Russian names have meanings and origins, and for that reason many names are long, which makes it a bit difficult for people to understand, but here is a ranking of cool Russian male names and cute Russian female names.

Why so many Russians have the same name

Russian names are often taken from the names of saints and myths, and it seems that they rarely give new names.

As a result, there are many people with the same name, so it is said that if you are sandwiched between two people with the same name, you can make a wish and it will come true. In Japanese, it feels like there are a lot of "Taro".

Why Russian names are so long

If many people have the same name, they may not recognize each other, so Russians often call their names by their nicknames.

This is a little different from what Japanese people call nicknames. That's why you don't know who you're talking about, even in Russian literature.

Depending on the person, the way you call someone changes, and the closer you get to know someone, the longer the name becomes. Even among Japanese people, there are nicknames that can only be understood by close relatives, so it may be similar to that.

How to name a Russian

What is the first name?

First comes the name. Even if there are many names with the same first name as above, nicknames will change how you call them.

Russian names include the father's name. Even if this is a single mother, the child will always have the father's surname.

The father's name is "Father's name + Vic" for boys, and "Father's name + Vna" for girls. By adding this, Russian names become longer, but it is now possible to understand that they are sons and daughters of 〇〇 (father).

What is your last name?

Lastly is the surname, Russian surnames are divided into masculine and feminine forms. Even though they live in the same house, older brothers and younger sisters have slightly different last names.

However, this is not always the case, and some surnames have the same form. Russians call their first names by their nicknames, which show familiarity and respect, while surnames are used in formal situations such as interviews.
