Several years ago, a friend was adopting from Russia and had not been told she could (or might want to) keep her child's name as part of his new name. The only name she had been given for him was a baby nickname. After arriving home, she discovered that his given name was not only beautiful, but had great historic meaning. Learn about the name or nickname by which your child has been known from these resources.
