10 Sins of Male Russian Names is an upcoming documentary film that will discuss the history of men in Russia. Some Russian men have created their own brand of vodka, and they have been known to drink more vodka in a day than most men could consume in a lifetime. Some men also have more than one mother, and their name is often associated with the last name of a female relative who lived in a particular era. And yet many male generations in the Russian culture never met their parents.
So, is the title a euphemism for something more sinister? Is this a tongue-in-cheek comment on men behaving badly? If you still want to know how Russians will define the word “genocide” or why the term “nepotism” is so offensive to today’s society, then listen to the new episode of 10 Sins of Male Russian Names.
Why is it that so many Russian names are male names? Old blog: There are only a few dozen female surnames, and you can easily find several male family names if only you knew where to look. It’s as if a male or female generation has decided to adopt the style of the male ancestor they never met.
