I just realized both my parents have Slavic names, while mine is Greek in origin. And in my country, concerning the grown-up males, 8 of the 10 most popular names also seem to be Greek in origin (the other two being Jewish/Biblical). The highest ranking purely Slavic name seems to be №12 – Stoyan. Among the male newborns, in the top 10 we have 5 Greek, 3 Latin and 2 Jewish/Biblical, while the first Slavic one is either №12 (Boris, if we count it as Slavic) or №14 (Bozhidar). At least among the grown-up women we have 2 Slavic names in the top 10 (Rositsa and Desislava – 7 and 8, respectively)…
I knew we’ve received a lot of Greek influence over the centuries, but I didn’t expect it to be this big. Can anyone share what’s the situation in the other South-Slavic countries, especially Serbia and Macedonia?
