There are some seriously cool products with Russian last names on them, and you should get your hands on one before the year is up. This blog post will highlight 10 of the most incredible ones that we could find. Whether it’s for yourself or a loved one, these items make thoughtful gifts for any occasion!
The first thing you should know about Russian last names is that there’s a lot to choose from. The most common ones are “Nikolaevich” and “-ovna,” but the list goes on for quite some time with even more diverse options like “-ova.” There are also surnames derived from occupations, such as -smith or -dyer. Plus, many people have two-word last names in Russia which combine both their father’s and mother’s name (e.g., Ivan Ivanovich Nikolaevich). Such combinations can be shortened by dropping one of the words; thus “Ivan Nikolai Smith” would become simply “Ivan Smith.”
The holidays are just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking of gifts. If you have a friend or loved one with an unusual last name, here are some great ideas for them! The best part is that these products can all be delivered right to your door in time for Christmas.
There are tons of awesome ideas on this list but there’s something about each gift idea that really resonates with me personally. I hope they resonate with you too!
