Some business Russian

February 11, 2016

Below you see the male and female versions respectively.

Imya (Имя) = Ivan or Anna

Ochyestvo (Отчество) = VladYmirovich (ВладИмирович) or VladYmirovna (ВладИмировна)

FamYlya (ФамИлия) = PyetrOv (ПетрОв)or PyetrOva (ПетрОва)

First names are normally reserved for family and close friends. Even old colleagues address each other with the first names and patronymics.

On the whole Russians have three names. The first name is the given name while the last name is the father's family name. The middle name is a version of the father's first name, known as a patronymic; for a man, it ends with the suffixes "vich" or "ovich" meaning 'son of.' For a woman, the patronymic is also the father's first name but with suffixes "a" or "ova" added, which means 'daughter of.'
