Paraskevi is a Russian girl's name. Two meanings come from its Greek origins—"preparation" and "Friday." This second meaning can be traced back to the Roman Empire, when two Christians prayed earnestly for a child, promising to raise the little one in their faith. On a Friday, they were blessed with a daughter who they named Paraskevi, who later became a saint. If your little one is born on a Friday, or if it's important to you that baby grows up holding onto your faith, the name Paraskevi is sure to be a good fit.
