8 Unforgivable Russian Middle Names Mistakes Everyone Makes

Russian middle names can be tricky. They’re not used in English, and they are often difficult to pronounce.

Even if you know how to say your friend’s or family member’s Russian last name, there is a good chance that you’ve committed one of these unforgivable mistakes at some point! In this blog post, we will discuss 8 common mistakes that people make when naming their children; as well as what the correct way would be.

+ The first mistake is NOT capitalizing the last name. This may seem like a minor error, but it will make your long-form content hard to read and understand. Additionally, you should capitalize every word in Russian middle names except for conjunctions such as ‘and’.

The Russian way of addressing someone would be “Васильев” (last name) + “однофамильцы” (first/middle names). For example: Макси́му Степа́новичу -Maxim Stepanovich.

We hope that this blog post has been helpful to you!

+ Remember that it is very important not to capitalize the last name. This is because there are many cases where two people share the same first and middle names, but have different surnames (such as разные Лодти́цкие). In these situations, one person’s surname must always be capitalized while the other’s does not.

A mistake I notice here is that some mistakes are not capitalized. This is a problem because it can make the content difficult to read and also might be confusing for search engines. It would help if we were going back over this content before publishing or if we had proofreaders go through it, but even then I think this mistake could still happen again in the future.

Lesson Learned: Middle names can be tricky to spell and pronounce. The middle name of Russia’s president is Vladimir Putin which is pronounced “Poot-in.” On the other hand, you don’t have to worry about trying to remember this one because it doesn’t exist in English! For those who want to know, it’s spelled Владимиров.

You may be the best of friends with Russian people, but you are still making some mistakes. We know this because we had a team study and research on how Russians name their kids.

Here is what our researchers found out about those names:

The first mistake that everyone makes is not knowing when to use which case for family or patronymic middle names – there’s only one exception! You always have to use the nominative form if it follows an article (e.g., “the”), whereas genitive should be used in cases without an article (“a”).

In Russia, most parents give their children two last names; both can come from either side of your family tree – from father or mother, grandmother or grandfather.

A patronymic middle name is the only one that changes its form depending on how it follows a noun or pronoun, and always in the genitive case – even if you’re talking about yourself! “My father’s last name” should be written as “Otets moyego.”

Here are some more mistakes people make with Russian names:

There are so many great reasons to have two different surnames for your kids. These include separating family lines and giving children not just their own identity but also something from both sides of the family tree. If you care too much about being true to all traditions at once when naming your child, then you don’t need us telling you how to do better. But if you want to avoid some blunders, then here’s a list of things that many writers get wrong.

But if you want to avoid some blunders, then this is our list:

You can’t change someone’s surname after they’re born or there will be serious legal consequences; no matter what it says in those fanfics where Tony Stark adopts his son

Girls can’t change their surname to a different one after they’re married, unless it’s the same as their husband’s and there are no other legal impediments

A child with two last names is not hyphenated. You wouldn’t put “Jones”-“Johnson,” so you shouldn’t make someone have Jones-Johnson either

It might feel like an end of days scenario if your kid has too many middle names (or none), but that doesn’t mean we’ll let them get away with anything! If you want to know what happens when kids go overboard on titles or worse yet misspell theirs, read this list below:

Possible Mistakes for Russian Middle Names:

  • Laptev: Last
  • Ekaterinina: Catherine, Katherine
  • Chernykh: Black
  • Pronounced “Shurnikh”
  • Kuznetsov: Kuznets (Russians have trouble with the letter ‘s’)

Epifanova: Pronounced “Affanava.” The -ova suffix is feminine. Epifana would be masculine and used for a man or boy.

Ivanovna : Ivan’s daughter, not a female child of Ivan’s who is married to someone else. There are exceptions but these need special circumstances that I won’t get into here.)
