Choosing a name for a newborn baby sometimes becomes a difficult challenge for parents. If many women can choose in advance some of the most pleasant to the ear or something meaningful names, then during pregnancy they often have to be “replayed” on the go: either the name of the future baby does not fit well with the patronymic and surname, or the baby’s sex did not turn out what parents expected - in short, a variety of factors can influence the choice.

Not least among them is fashion. In different eras, there are many different names. For example, at the end of the 80s, children were in vain called "common" names - Olya, Katya or Natasha for a girl; Seryozha, Zhenya, Andryusha - for the boy. By the beginning of zero, the future parents went into serious troubles, and kindergartens flooded Sophia, Zabava, Bogdana and Borislav. In Perm, there are even brothers Lucifer and Waldemar.

The most popular name for boys

The name Maxim does not go out of fashion for many years.With the development of the Internet and the integration of Russia into the world community, parents who choose this name for their sons, have another argument: the name Maxim easily adapts to most European languages. The same with the names of Alexander, Denis or Ivan (editors find out. Rf specifies: Ivan in English will be John, but Eugene - Eugene, do not confuse!).

Slightly more complicated is the situation with the equally popular, but poorly translated names Yaroslav, Arseny, Kirill, Artyom or Dmitry (Demetria is a single-root, but female name. For example, actress Demi Moore bears that name). Note Dmitriev in Russia in recent years began to be born into the world much more than before; Perhaps this is due to the figure of the politician Dmitry Medvedev. Of course, young parents and the name Vladimir are not evading it, often in honor of Vladimir Putin.

But the unusual names of the Russian parents do not aspire to give to their children - statistically the “strange” names of boys in Russia are called relatively rarely. If before the civil registry offices registered such citizens as Angel, Ogneslav, Summerset, and even Ocean, now the original names of the unit.

At the same time, the fashion for the “old” names returned. So, quite often babies are called Bogdan, Matvey, Zakhara, Timofey, Gleb, Anatolia. There are more rare names - for example, Thomas, Miron or Luka (in fairness it should be noted that Miron Fedorov, known as rapper Oksimiron, got this name when it was not yet in vogue).
But it is in the regions of Russia, but in the national republics sons are called Timura, Tagir, Arthur and Amira. The situation is somewhat different in the republics of the North Caucasus. For example, in Vladikavkaz the most common name is Alan, in Makhachkala and Grozny - Magomed, and in Kazan and Ufa - Ruslan.

The most popular name for girls

The fashion for names for girls has changed somewhat. If three decades ago one could meet the girl Lisa or Sonya infrequently, now it is almost the most popular names, and the fashion lasts about ten years. However, other sonorous and beautiful names are not inferior.
Still, girls are often called the name Anastasia. This name comes from the Greek "anastos", translated - resurrected. In the esoteric environment, it is believed that a girl with such a name in life can overcome all the burdens and reach any peaks. At the same time she will have a fine mental organization.Anastasia, as a rule, gullible. They can be excellent psychologists, actresses or kindergarten teachers.

“Strong” names for girls - Irina and Marina. Not so popular in recent years, they are still in certain demand among parents who believe in the role of a name for the fate of a child. These names are given to girls so that they grow up confident and filled with internal forces. The list of popular names for girls also includes Anna, Alexandra, Maria, Polina, Elena, Darya and Natalia.

Newborn girls, like boys, are often given names with a touch of antiquity. Among the names sounding archaic for our ear - for example, Lyubava, Jaromira, Glafira, Taisiya and others. In addition, the most popular are Milena and Milan, Eva and Vitaly, Varvara and Kira.

Fashion names as a sign of time

We are edited by materialists, and we are not sure that the name influences the character and fate of a person. But with confidence it can be argued that life affects the choice of a particular name. An example is the first Soviet years in Russia, when names like Oktyabrina, Revolution, Klara or Rosa (in honor of the revolutionaries Klara Zetkin and Rosa Luxemburg) were in vogue.
The current trend is difficult to determine, but it is safe to say that children's names have become a field for parents to express themselves. Many babies are called Kings, Charisma, Eros, and even Lenin. And in 2008, seven hundred Messiahs were born in Russia.

Thus, where the balance is shifted in favor of personal freedoms (it’s not a secret that in any society there is a need to keep a balance between public debt and personal freedom), for example, this is the USA and Europe, where people give their children rare, non-standard names. Thus, parents are trying to emphasize their individuality. And vice versa - where priorities are set in favor of conservative values, parents tend to choose traditional names for babies.
Lyubava, Fun and Radmila, it seems, can look something like thisLyubava, Fun and Radmila, it seems, can look something like this
At the same time, in the last decade, a trend is emerging in the country - traditional names are returning to fashion. If a century ago, Aleksandrov, Dmitriev, Anastasii and Marii were full on the street, then the situation is similar (though with a noticeable bias in “Russianness”).
We propose to draw conclusions on your own, and at the same time to read about what Russian names are for their children.
