Names of the Week – Tatiana & Tobias

tobtatiheader

This week our names are Tatiana & Tobias

Tatiana – is Russian, derived from Tatianus, an old Roman family name.  A beautiful, grand name with a very regal feel, Tatiana is definitely princess-worthy.  Tatiana was the name of one of the Romanov grand Duchesses (pictured below).

Tobias – is a Greek form of the name Tobiah, meaning “God is good”.  Tobias lends itself to the nickname Toby/Tobey (see actor Tobey Maguire pictured above).  I also enjoy Tobin as a way to get the nickname Toby.  Tobias follows a growing trend of male names ending in the letter S – Silas, Elias, Julius, to name a few.
