Tanya is a Russian girl’s name with the impressive meaning of “fairy queen.” A Slavic diminutive of the Latin name Tatiana, Tanya is now its own given name in the English-speaking world. In Russia, it first became popular due to Alexander Pushkin’s poem Eugene Onegin, whose main character was named Tatiana Larina. It remains popular throughout the world and is a beautiful—not to mention mystical and majestic—name for baby.
