Thanks to JNE for mentioning her during the holiday season. Our Name of the Day is Svetlana.
Starbaby Vivienne Jolie-Pitt might just revive French namesand first daughter Natasha Obama could propel Russian appellations to new heights. While plenty of Slavic names translate easily into English, Svetlana is an interesting case. If that has you scratching your head, remember that the Greek photos means light, too. Back in the day, he made a lot of noise. Interestingly, the first English translator of the poem opted to discard Svetlana.
In fact, sci fi write Sergei Lukyanenko created a character called Svetlana for his Night Watch novel. If Svetlana has a drawback, it is her common nickname — Sveta. Still, with that ending, your little Svetlana could easily answer to Lana. If V really is the new Zparents could find this one an appealing option. Russian name svetlana if Anya and Larissa catch fire, why not Svetlana? As a kid I hated my name, since it was hard for people to pronounce, since I was little I adopted Russian name svetlana name Lana, literally everyone calls me Lana.
But now I love my name and I wish I had embraced it, instead of being called just Lana but to also be known as Sveta or Svet or Veta even. It is really neat to read the comments of all the ladies named Svetlana — to see the wide variety of backgrounds or reasons they got their name. I do picture someone tall, blond, attractive, smart, rich, talented, etc. The Russian Claire, basically ironic that they have the same meaning. Not me. Even Sally. It has a definite ethnic sound to it, so I agree about it not going great with a last name Russian name svetlana McDonald or Higgins.
But Johnson or Hansen or Myers? I think it works with plenty of non-Slavic names. Claire Svetlana? I am so bored by Claire but this is perfect! With Claire and in the middle you can have a last name you might not think it would work with like Wilson, for instance.
Hi everyone! As you can all see, my name is also Svetlana. I was very surprised that so many people likes this name. By the way, i am from Serbia ex Yugoslavia. This name is very common in Russia, Bulgaria,Macedonia,Ucrania etc. The thing is i have never liked my name until couple of months ago.
It sounded too serious to me. And a little bit silly, because the nickname for Svetlana in my country is Ceca- pronounced Tsetsa and Lana. The name itself came from the word light.
I have a friend in France called Claire, and when she comes to Serbia everyone calls her Svetlana. I love the topic, of course,because of my name but mostly because i saw a comment from a girl who has exactly the same name as mine. But also it is too difficult for them to pronounce it.
Hi everbody! As you an see my name is also Svetlana. I used to consider my name as weird and soo not me. But with the years i Russian name svetlana think Svetlana is a special name. And it suits me. So thank you for the name Dad!
Hello everyone my name is Svetlana and my parents are mexicans but I was born in the. A, my mother had no choice in choosing my name because my father was dead set in naming me, although my mother says he probably got the name from one of his lovers lol. My grandmother could not pronounce it so she nicked named me Seve.
My name is Svetlana. I was born in Russia, but am now Russian name svetlana in the USA. I was born in Ukraine and later moved to the U. The closest thing I have to a Biblical scholar around here is my father, a pastor with his doctorate in theology. Did the Orthodox as the name to her, or is there a historical link there? Thanks for catching that! There are two possibilities. One, Russian name svetlana could be named by custom — like the three wise men or a handful of other Biblical women. That would explain why the Orthodox and the Roman Catholics have different names for her.
I know Photina shows up in at least one medieval list of martyrs. But how did they come to consensus? Hmmm … I need to find a Biblical scholar. The Orthodox and Catholic churches, while they consider the Bible an integral, necessary, and divinely inspired authority on Christian faith, do not rely on scripture alone as their sole source of doctrine, partly because the Bible, too, was passed down through sacred tradition along with oral tradition, art, and other texts not considered to be divinely inspired or equal to the Bible.
These other traditions include names of saints, some of whose characters are mentioned, but nameless, in the Bible. These names are thought traditionally to have been passed down, first orally and then on paper, from the day the events occurred. Have some of them been passed down incorrectly or translated very differently from the original?
Perhaps the have, and most likely so.
Probably not, and not to us at least. I know a Svetlana. She goes by Svet. I always thought her name was lovely. Even Katya is great with all its phenomenal dimunitives.
Otlichno, Kim! Great to see another Russian laguage type around! I was boring old Katya in my Russian classes and admired those who chose their Russian names with more forethought as I progressed through the years. This was my Russian name in college!! I was a Russian minor. I love it! Svetlana is all sweetness and light to my ears. My Russian professor used to call me Sveta, Svetochka, or Russian name svetlana. LOL, Kim! And thanks for the additional nicknames. What an exotic beauty!
A mixture of sultry and little Heidi on the swiss alps. Very pretty. Unfortunately it would sound really Russian name svetlana with my Mc- name…I would smile so big if I met a little Svetlana. The meaning is great, and the saint is an even better association. I love Svetlana. Lana is a really cute nickname. Svetlana is a sweet, classy name and I love Russian names. I am part Latvian born and raised in USA though. I am mostly Irish but have a small bit of Russian name svetlana in me.
But I love Anya! I like her sound, her meaning and her 3 syllables. I would love to meet one. And while many Russian names come through to English well, a do not, so I like that Svetlana sounds fully slavic without really tripping us up, as Verity notes. I would absolutely love to meet a little Svetlana — it would be perfect for someone with some slavic roots or even just an adventurous namer. Thanks for covering her, Verity! I would definitely love to see a little one, though! The name itself is gorgeous and lush. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
