DIMINUTIVE NAMES

Same as the Russian girls, Russian boys also have diminutives names (a little or short name). Only family and close friends that call a diminutive name. Diminutive names sometimes take from the beginning, middle, or ending of the first given name.

For example:

  • Александр – Алексаша, Саша, Сашка, Сашок, Сашуся
  • Борис –  Боренка, Боруся, Боря, Борюшка
  • Андрей – Андрейка, Андруха, Дрюша
  • Виктор –  Витенька, Витёк, Витуся, Витунчик
  • Григорий – Гриша, Гриня
  • Артём – Тёма
  • Олег – Алик, Олежка, Олежек
  • Станислав – Стас, Слава, Стасик
  • Юрий – Юра, Юрик, Юраша
  • Пётр – Пепик, Петро, Петенька, Петечка, Петруша

After knowing the list above, now you can call your Russian friend’s name with  a proper pronunciation. If you feel confused to begin a conversation with Russian, you can visit some commons greetings in Russian, and you can learn Russian cases like genitive case, dative case, and prepositional case to speak Russian language perfectly with a good grammar. Don’t worry to start speaking in Russian. You can master this language as long as you keep practicing.
