Is this the name of just one person?

Every Russian has three names:the first name the patronymic (fathers name) the last name These three names are used together for any official documents including a passport.

First Name The first name is a given name. Russians are extremely inventive in creating new forms of names. For example, there are more than twenty forms of Maria in Russian!The full form is used in official papers, in formal relationships and with unfamiliar people. The short form is neutral and used in relationships with friends. is a form of affection (a diminutive). The unceremonious form is quite impolite but OK within the family or between kids or adult friends.

Patronymic The patronymic is used with the full version of the name, never with a nickname. NOT The patronymic usually has the ending - or - for males, and - or - for females.Examples:If the fathers name is , his sons patronymic will be , and his daughters patronymic will be .

Last Name The last name is the family name. Most male last names and female last names have different endings:

male last names end in -, -, -, -.

female last names end in -, -, -, -.

Last name Russians dont use last names as forms of address....

TitlesTitles in Russian are used ONLY in official circumstances. (Mr.)(Mrs.)(Professor)(Dr.)
