My cousin and his wife are having a baby boy. She is Russian, he is English. They did think about Hugo, but have now gone off it. Just wondered if anybody had any inspiration for boys names which work well in Russian and English.

Kostya is nickname for Konstantin, Kolya for Nikolai.

Kostya is short for Konstantin

I really like Yegor and Yaroslav

Konstantin?

Great suggestions, really like Roman, Arkady, Dmitri and Kostya, but is Kostya a nickname for Nicolai or have I got that completely wrong?

Oh thanks for all the responses. I LOVE Konstantin and Valentin, but for some reason they were not as enamoured as I was.

Love Luka and Vlad, thank you. Sergei has also been rejected. Again I think it's great. So much easier when it's not your baby though. grin

I like Sergei - is that Russian?!

Nikolai can be shortened to Nik.

Isaak works well in either language

Thanks for the suggestions. I did suggest Hugh, but it wasn't met with a great response.

Like Ivan and Boris. Especially Boris. Great name.

I've always had a soft spot for Ivan, myself. It got vetoed by DH though. And then there's Boris, of course...

If they liked Hugo.. How about Hugh?
