Baby name Tatiana


Tatiana is a baby name long associated with princesses and a saint in Slavic nations, particularly Russia. But as of the 20th century, it's become more popular in English-speaking countries. The name sounds exotic without being too out there and comes with a variety of cute nicknames.

Meaning of the Name Tatiana

Tatiana is the feminine version of the Roman family name Tatius. The name's exact meaning is unknown. Russia and other Slavic nations adopted Tatiana to honor the saint of the same name, but English speakers in Western Europe and North America didn't catch on to the moniker until the 1900s.

Many people associate Tatiana with the third-century Christian saint of the same name. Tatiana's father was a secret Christian, which was frowned upon in Rome, and he raised his daughter to be as well. When it was discovered, she was captured and made a sacrifice to the god Apollo. But Tatiana prayed for help, and an earthquake came and destroyed the Apollo statue. She was then put into a cage with a lion, but the lion would not harm her. So, the Romans tortured and beat her until she died. Today, she is considered the patron saint of students.
