Tatiana Origin and Meaning

The name Tatiana is a girl's name of Russian origin.

Tatiana was derived from Tatius, a Sabine-Latin family name of unknown origin. Titus Tatius was the name of an ancient king who ruled over the Sabines, an ancient Italic tribe who lived near Rome. The Romans used the name Tatius even after the Sabines died out and created the short forms Tatianus and Tatiana. The names were eventually disseminated throughout the Orthodox Christian world, including Russia.

Tatiana, long popular in Russia and starting to catch on here, is a delicate, balletic name that carries a touch of the exotic. Although on the decline from its peak in 1999, Tatiana is an underused beauty. Today, however, Mila, Anastasia, and Natalia are fresher Russian choices.

Saint Tatiana, a third century martyr, is venerated in the Eastern Orthodox Church. Grand Duchess Tatiana Romanova, was one of the ill-fated daughters of the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II.

Also translated as Tatyana, the name appears in Alexander Pushkin's verse novel Eugene Onegin and the opera based on it, and it was used by Chekhov as well.

Tatiana Kennedy Schlossberg is the daughter of Caroline Kennedy, and it is currently chic in France.
