I live in Kansas City, my entire family still lives in Russia. I haven't seen any of them in 5 years and I miss them a lot. My mom was always like my best friend and I tell her everything and almost always take her advice.
I'm expecting and my mom may never meet her grand child...of course she plans to visit but she has health issues and may not be able to and I'm not sure that finances will allow for a trip to Russia for me and the baby once he/she comes.
My dilemma is that my mom wants the baby to have a traditional Russian name...but I don't want to! I actually really don't like our names much at all and my baby will be born and raised in the USA and will be lucky if he/she ever even visits Russia.
I don't want to hurt my mom, it's bad enough that she won't see the baby much if at all. But I really really really don't want to give my baby a Russian name!
What would you do?

I have always loved the name Tatyana.(sp?) Is there a Russian name that might have an American sounding nickname for that Russian name?
