Pop Culture References for the name Russia


Lou Says:


Oh ok. Makes sense, but I still find it to be appropriation in a way. To each their own.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I'm fairly sure India was derived from a real name (I think it was Indus, but I might be wrong) whereas Russia has no ties to a "real" name. I think that's part of it, but I'm not totally sure.

Lou Says:


Why is India acceptable, but not Russia? Both are a bit...I don't know the right word, but let's go with use as names, especially if you have no tie to the history and culture of the country and like it simply because it sounds pretty. But that's just my opinion.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I really like the way Russia sounds, but I don't think I'd name a child it. Same goes for Ireland.

Zelliew Says:


I only see it as a name for a country

Izak Says:


I love this name, but after everything going on I don't think we could ever use it. We're very involved in orphan care and it would be a horrid reminder of all the God forsaken things they're putting their children through.

Regarding the description, Odessa is a place in Ukraine, not Russia.
