What's your name? Kataleya Orchid, Socrates, Dauria or Nami-Vikoria will answer in a couple of years the little Transbaikalians born in the region this year. According to statistics summed up for 9 months, the Civil Registry Office named the most unusual, rare and quite simple names of "new" people in the region. What names are now in vogue, and what the girls and boys were called a few years ago, learned the "Zabaikalsky worker". Gulsina, Nami-Victoria, Dauria, Orchid are perhaps the most unusual names of 2020 in the Trans-Baikal Territory. Of course, parents have stories of choosing a name. Mom and dad, a newly born girl with a Japanese-Russian name, simply did not want to quarrel - the father, keen on studying Japan, wanted to name his daughter Nami, and the mother chose the name Victoria. This is how the decision to combine the two names appeared. The girl Dauria was born into a military family who served in Dauria. And Gulsina was born in a large family, where there are Vladimir, Roman, Artyom and Sofia. Gulsina, and the name means "flower, blooming soul, fidget", was named in honor of the great-grandmother of the mother of the newborn girl. By the way, future parents began to remember their grandmothers quite often. Names from the past seem to be slowly becoming popular again. - I have Agrafena's niece. That was the name of my father's great-grandmother. Shortly before giving birth, for some reason, they remembered this name in the family, and everyone liked it, - said the chitinka Alexandra Vasilyeva. - And my niece Anisya was named after my grandmother. Although her whole life was called Annushka, and according to her passport she was exactly Anisya, - says Rita Romanova. Such once popular Russian names as Nikolai, Eugene, Vitaly, Oleg, Natalya, Svetlana, Oksana and Nadezhda are gradually disappearing into the past. The names Peter, Anton, Pavel, Pavel, Lydia, Daria, Vasilisa, Ulyana, Varvara are now considered rare. Lev, Miron, Matvey. - My son and I since birth, wherever we appeared, we were told all the time: "Oh, we haven't had Antonov for a long time." And I always liked this name, my beloved writer A.P. Chekhov. They did not choose for a long time, I just felt that it was Anton,”Natalya Popova, the mother of the now“rare”Antoshka, shares her story. Moreover, such stories with seemingly quite ordinary names, as it turned out, are not uncommon. Interestingly, parents are increasingly inspired by their favorite films. - My daughter has a rather rare name - Antonina. I have a favorite movie "Girls", and I really liked Tosya. When she was pregnant, her husband suggested three names to choose from, among them was the name Tosya. So they called it, said Anna Volfovich. In 2020, according to the registry office, there are much more Mikhailov, Alexandrov, Kirillov, Artemov, Sofiy, Polin, Alis and Alexander in Transbaikalia. Note that not only this year is rich in rare and unusual names. For example, in 2019, employees of the registry office were surprised by such names of boys as Daniel, Robert, Daniyal, Alex, Jaromir, Eremey, Klim, Dominik, Christian, Lucas, Arman, Spartak, Aristarkh. And the girls in the same year were called Leia, Pelageya, Oia, Azalea, Olivia, Mila, Sarah, Helen, Faina, Bozena, Aelita, Mia, Teya. Popular names among newborns last year were: Artyom, Alexander, Matvey, Maxim, Mikhail, Ivan, Kirill, Egor, Ilya, Dmitry. Among the girls: Sofia, Anastasia, Daria, Victoria, Ekaterina, Milana, Anna, Varvara, Alexandra, Valeria. The registry office also notes that old Russian names are gaining popularity - Lyubava, Praskovya, Aksinya, Polina, Ulyana, Daniil, Ignat, Prokhor, Zakhar and Matvey. No, well, for sure grandparents are remembered by modern parents. But it is worth noting that Trans-Baikal parents are still very loyal to their children. The famous Elon Musk, for example, surpassed not only Russia, but the whole world, calling his newborn son X Æ A-12.Anastasia Saltanova.
