    A Slavic Name for Baby?

    I started looking at slavic names today. My boyfriend and I both have a lot of slavic ancestry, and we thought maybe we should consider a slavic (russian/polish/czech) middle name for our baby. Only if we find one we truly love though, it's just a little experiment really to see where we get and what we find. So do you have any suggestions, any favourite slavic names? If you've got any opinions on these, it's appreciated (but not necessary)!

    This far we have:

    Boy:
    Jarek
    Bela
    Kamil
    Karel
    Kazimir
    Milan
    Igor
    Pavel
    Fyodor
    Isidor
    Kirill
    Leonid
    Pasha
    Serafim
    Vasiliy

    Girl:
    Libuse
    Ludmila
    Petra
    Ruzena
    Vendula
    Marcelina
    Marzena
    Roksana
    Annushka
    Natasha
    Oksana
    Polina
    Verusha
    Vladimira

    Thanks!

    I love Russian nicknames. If you don't find a Slavic name that you love maybe you can give your child a Russian style nn for whatever name you choose.

    I just saw Rusalka mentioned in a different thread, but it has a slightly bad meaning. I also think Danica is Slavic. Off your list I like Kazimir and Oksana or Annushka/Anoushka best. I like Maksim and Elena from the suggestions so far.

    I really love Oksana!

    I don't know a ton about Slavic names in general, but I researched Polish names a while ago for a short story I wrote for a writing class, and ever since I've had a massive thing for Polish names! These are some of my favorites, feel free to take them if they appeal:

    Girls:
    Ariadna
    Klara
    Lilija (said just like Lilia)
    Gracja (GRAHS-ya)
    Walentyna (Valentina)
    Zenobia
    Angelina
    Cecylia

    Boys:
    Ziven (ZEE-vehn)
    Jonasz
    Eliasz (not sure how Jonasz and Eliasz are different from Jonas and Elias, but I do love them!)

    Ariadna, Gracja, Lilija, and Ziven are my very favorites of them, though.

    Good luck!

    ETA: I know the most adorable Belarusian baby girl named Milana, too. Her mom calls her Milanka sometimes, I think that's adorable. And the similar Milena is equally stunning, I think that'd be a lovely Slavic choice, too.
