    To be honest I’ve never heard such a name like Голя, though you probably misprint in Галя, if not your teachers are wrong. My favourite names are Филипп (m) & Inga (f), they aren’t Slavonic but rather spread in Russia.


    About Russian names look here
    and here

    My name is Natasha and I like it^)))

    I have lived in Russia for 13 years and the most of people's names are Natasha , Masha , Sveta - These are female names . Ruslan , Sasha , Jenya , man name.

    There is a lot of good names. Male - Sergey, Oleg, Ivan, Nikolai, Evgenii.
    Female - Elena, Ol'ga, Irina, Tat'jana, Ekaterina. My name - Vjacheslav. Short form - Slava.

    my name is Alina
    and it hasn't short form

    My name is Дима. It's very popular in russia.
    I like the names: Оля, Юля
    In Russia very popular such names as: Наташа, Катя, Лена, Аня (female), and Саша, Дима (male).

    By me "Лиза" (Елизавета) is favorite russian female name.
    As for the male's... well, I like old slavonic names like my own, "Владислав", and "Святослав", "Вячеслав", "Игорь", "Олег" also.
    my favourite male names are: Nikita, Kirill, Konstantin, Nikolay, Yuriy, Sergey, Alexey, Alexander...

    female names: Yana, Kira, Kristina, Daria, Olga, Nadezhda (sounds on russian like "hope"), Ljubov ("love"), Vera ("Faith"), Irina, Oksana

    Ivan is definitely right!
    Голя is not common for Russia! ;);)

    I have had many Russian friends over the years who were called; Ivanka, Nona, Larissa, Oleg, Gregor, Sergei and Tania.

    I like such female names as Marina, Polina, Valeria, and male names Dmitryi, Ruslan :)

    Viktor, Arkadi, Jevgeni and Maxim for male

    And Anastasia, Yelena and Tatjana for female
