Russian Naming Convention / Useful Notes

Diminutives You're reading a Russian-written and/or set novel in which there's a hot Sovietspy (with blonde highlights, natch) called Ekaterina Ivanovna Smirnova. She hangs around Moscow and goes to Moscow Centre to do her work, where she's called Major Smirnova or Ekaterina Ivanovna. Then she goes to visit her friends, who start calling her Katya. Then she visits her parents at their dacha (it's pretty much a given that they have one, being senior CPSU members) and they call her Katen'ka. Naming Conventions So we're back to our hot female spy.

List of Korean given names

Most Korean given names consist of two Sino-Korean morphemes each written with one hanja. There are also names with more than two syllables, often from native Korean vocabulary. Finally, there are a small number of one-syllable names. Originally, there was no legal limitation on the length of names, but since 1993, regulations in South Korea have prohibited the registration of given names longer than five syllable blocks, in response to some parents giving their children extremely long names such as the 16-syllable Haneulbyeollimgureumhaennimbodasarangseureouri (하늘별님구름햇님보다사랑스러우리).[1] Lists of hanja for names are illustrative, not exhaustive.

Names of THE FUTURE!!!

Answers asking for names for characters in stories set in the future. After answering them, I realized that there are probably a lot of people faced with the same question, so I was inspired to write this article. First, according to, names go through a 100-year cycle of popularity. This means that if your main character was born in the year 2138, you could look up which names were popular in the year 1938 and get a general idea of what might be popular in your character's year of birth. Now, one should not think that names will be exactly the same 100 or 200 years hence as they are today, because they won't - newly-minted names will come into popularity, while some names will fall out of favor and never come back. So, the farther the future, the greater the differences will be. We can also look at current naming trends to predict where names might be going: Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources.
