Russian baby names are attracting new attention in the Western World, thanks to the increased visIbility of Russian culture and an influx of Russian models.

Russian names in the US Top 1000 for girls include Annika, Kira, Mila, Nadia, and Nina. For boys, Russian names in the US Top 1000 include Damien, Dmitri, Ivan, Nikolai, and Valentin. In Russia, popular names include Polina, Ksenia, Mikhail, and Alexei.
