Tatiana, long popular in Russia and starting to catch on here, is a delicate, balletic name that carries a touch of the exotic. Fresher than other Russian choices such as Natasha and Sasha, Tatiana is an underused beauty.

Saint Tatiana, a third century martyr, is venerated in the Eastern Orthodox Church. Grand Duchess Tatiana Romanova, was one of the ill-fated daughters of the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II.
