One of the most popular names for Russian girls is Elena. In fact, it was among the top five names given to baby girls in St. Petersburg in 2004. Elena is the Russian version of the Greek name Helen, meaning “light” and “beautiful”.
Some Russian ladies may spell it Alena, Alyona, or Yelena, while Ukrainian women sometimes use Olena. Plenty of gorgeous Russian athletes share this name, such as tennis pros Elena Dementieva, Elena Vesnina, and pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva.
Russian name days are a special occasion for ladies to throw parties, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy receiving gifts or simple congratulations. Join in the fun and show these beautiful Russian brides that you appreciate their culture by sending a special email on July 24th!
