    Russian

    I'm in love with Russian boy names, but my husband thinks they are too unusual or sound girly. Some favorites include Aleksei, Mikhail, Nikolai and Ilya. My husband is part Russian, so I don't think my choices are that unusual. I've poured through name lists to find names more commonly used in Russia that he would like. Please give me some usable suggestions that could work and opinions on using Russian names in America.

    Grischa- Rhymes with Mischa, it's like Russian Greg. It makes me think of Grey & reminds me of the name Mischa without any connection to an American d list starlet
    Evgeniy- Yev-gzenie. Like Eugene, but I like how soft the name is.


    Konstantin, Boris & Maxim are stronger sounding choices that I really like.

    I assume your more drawn to the more "Russian sounding" names but here are a few that work well in Europe and the US that are also Russian.

    Yulian
    Anton
    Feliks
    Sasha
    Igor
    Adrian
    Boris
    Misha
    Vitali

    You could also name a son Elijah and nn Ilya. Provided you like Elijah and your DH would agree.
    Aurelia - Endora - Illyria - Lorelei - Merida - Ofelia - Penrose - Tabitha - Viola - Zenobia
    Alaric - Anton - Cedric - Dexter - Erich - Felix - Hector - Hendrik - Leonidas - Victor
