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.
The name comes from that of an ancient Sabine king, Titus Tatius, who ruled Rome with Romulus.
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.
Also translated as Tatyana, the name appears in Alexander Pushkin's verse novel Eugene Onegin and the opera based on it, and it was used by Chekhov as well.
Tatiana Kennedy Schlossberg is the daughter of Caroline Kennedy, and it is currently chic in France.
