Russian name generator

This Russian name generator will generate either 10 male or female names depending on your choice. Both genders share roughly the same last names, except for names which end in 'n' or 'v' for males, which end in 'na' and 'va' for females.

In Russia, names aren't used in the same way most of us would you use them, especially in formal ways.
In legal documents, the surname is usually written first, then the first name and then a patronymic name, which is a name based on the father's name.

The patronymic name is important as it's polite to call somebody by their first and patronymic name.

Lastly, many names have a short version, which is used as a nickname. Those names are in brackets in this generator. In real life there are various versions of nicknames, they're usually fairly similar to each other, but one version may only be used by friends while another may only be used by lovers in private moments.
If you want a modern/traditional Russian name from this generator, stick to those with a nickname.

In this generator the order of the names are the same as you'd see them on many legal documents, so first the surname, then the first name with or without a nickname in brackets and then the patronymic name.
