Tanya is a Russian girl’s name with the lovely meaning of “honorable.” A diminutive of the Latin name Tatiana, Tanya is now its own given name in the English-speaking world. In Russia, it became popular due to Alexander Pushkin’s poem Eugene Onegin, whose main character was named Tatiana Larina. Today, it remains a noble and admirable—not to mention beautiful—name for baby.
