The German edition of Wunderweib shared with its readers a list of Russian names for girls and boys, who in Germany are considered the most beautiful. So, the name Alina turned out to be wonderful and “ballet” - among the residents it is primarily associated with the world-famous ballerina, leading actress of the Mariinsky Theater Alina Somova. The name Polina was called a nice alternative to the German name Paulina, the name Daria is considered rare and unusual. Germans liked the short forms of Russian names: Mila and Vika.

Among men, not all the options proposed in the article are full forms. This, in particular, Alyosha and Kohl. We also noted the name of Maxim, which resembles the name of Maximilian, familiar to the Germans. In addition, young parents are recommended to consider the names of Vadim and Nikita.
