Ninel is a gender-neutral name of Russian origin. Like Lenin, but reversed, you're in for a real treat if you're a parent with a passion for Russian politics! Vladimir Lenin, a Russian lawyer and revolutionary, is famed as the founder of the Soviet Union. And as the story goes, he took on his iconic surname in 1901 after his three-year exile to River Lena in Siberia. Lenin might be all over the history books, but your little Ninel's life will hopefully lead to even greater legacies.
