Natasha Origin and Meaning

The name Natasha is a girl's name of Russian origin meaning "birthday of the Lord".

Natasha, an appealing, still exotic name, entered the American mainstream post-Cold War, but seems to have peaked in the eighties, replaced by the more straightforward Natalie. As is common for Natashas the world over, the Obamas shorten their Natasha's name to Sasha.

Cultural references range from the central character in Tolstoy's War and Peace to Chekhov's Three Sisters and some of his short stories to comix heroine agent Natasha Romanoff, and was seen on screen in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers.
