464 Russian Baby Names With Meanings

Selecting a Russian baby name for your bundle of joy can be challenging, considering the number of options available. But MomJunction's baby names tool will help you find some of the most appealing Russian baby names with meanings.

Russians give three names to their kids, a given or first name, a patronymic name, and a surname. The first name is given soon after the birth of the child. The patronymic name, which is a suffix according to the gender, is derived from the father’s first name. And just like other cultures, Russian surnames are family names handed down from generation to generation.

While most of the Russian baby names originated in Russia, some names are taken from the Greek language as well, especially names from the Eastern Orthodox tradition. Some parents even combine two names to create a unique name for their baby. But the bottom line is that all these names have a rich tonal quality and interesting meanings. Below are a few examples of these names.
