Pick your favourite Slavic name
For some time now I've been quite obsessed with Slavic names because of my heritage but I'm just not able to pick my personal favourites so I thought I would ask you guys: Which ones are your favourites based on this collection?
Nadezhda - Love that name, it means hope in several Slavic languages, Nicknames are Nadyenka, Nadie, Nadya
Svesda - means star, stress is on the last sillable
Nevena - means Marigold and I think it's a unique option to the upcoming Marigol
Desislava - it's a Saint's name and a very old one. The meaning is 'tenth glory'
Snezhana - snow girl
Taina - means secret, stress on the first sillable
Kalyna - guelder rose
Jagoda - strawberry
Malina - raspberry
Rusalka - a mermaid in Russian mythology
Morana - goddess of Winter & death (I'm quite fond of low-key goth names but I guess not everyone likes that)
Teodor - love that name, my favourite family member wears it but I wonder if it's too old fashioned
Nedyalko - born on a Sunday (Nickname: Nedelcho (ch pronounced like a Tsch))
Jezero - lake
Valko - wolf (this one is hard to write correctly in Latin letters because the a is pronounced like a Bulgarian ъ (Вълко)
What do you think? Which ones are your favourites? I might use the best ones for one of my writing projects and stories in the future. right now I haven't got the time but it would be good to narrow down the list to the best ones.
