In 2009 naming traditions in Ukraine did not change much in comparison to 2008. Well, probably you would be interested if you should comment the name choice of your Ukrainian friends as a “rare” and “unusual”.
For girls top 5 is the following:
1. Anastasiya (Nastya)
On the top of the list for the last 4 years.
2. Sophia (Sonya)
Beautiful name, equally common for different regions.
OMG! Annas again! I had 5!!! Annas in my high school class!
