[Opinions] Russian Girl Names
I'm doing a story and part of it takes place in Russia. One of the main characters needs a name and I have ideas but I don't know which one to pick.Nadia is my favorite, pronounced: NAH-dee-ah.
Tamara is an option I'm considering, it has the nickname Mara which I like.
Elena I like with the nickname Lena.Also I love Anastasiya, Arina and Alina but the name can't start with an A. The last name is Romanova and it can't be changed.Thanks in advance!

Nadia definitely sounds the most Russian out of all those names and it flows well with the last name.
