Russian name days originated as saint's days or angel days. Since there were so many saints named Maria, we get to honor beautiful Russian brides who share this name several times throughout the year. However, August 4th is the eighth and final Russian name day for Maria.

 

While Maria is a very common name in many cultures, Russian women like to spell it with slight variations, like Mariya or Marya. They may also prefer the nicknames of Masha, Mashenka, or Mashulya.

 

These ladies are often very caring, generous, and helpful, much like the beloved saints they are named after. One such woman was Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia. She was patroness of several hospitals and tended to wounded soldiers all her life.
