Meaning

This lovely name made its way from Russia in the 1800s, travelled to Italy and spread across the Western World. While some say that it derives from an old Slavic word for “dreamer”, it doesn’t stop there. This name means “strong” for the Native Americans, “girl” to the Spanish, and “grace” in Hebrew and Russian. She is a Babylonian goddess of oceans and an Incan deity of fire.
