    Thanks Pitchka - I do indeed learn more about Russian names. What about yours. I'm sure it is a diminuitive of a larger name. Am I correct?

    Well, my real name is Maria. It has probably more diminuatives than any other name. The most common one is Masha (and its variations -- Mashka, Mashen'ka, etc.), but there is also Manya (Man'ka, Manechka), Marusya (Marus'ka, Marusechka), and many others. Other than Masha, the other basic forms are mainly used in the rural areas.

    "No, Sasha came to Tarasova with both programs done."

    That's news!

    Everyone had been talking all season about the new programs TT had created for her.

    Yep. Tarasova got all the credit for something she didn't do. I wonder if that was the reason Nicky and TT split up.

    Thank you so much for explaining this. I had always thought that using the first name and patrynomic was a sign of being "in" the circle, as in, "Tatiana, Anatol's kid," not of being formal. That certainly sheds new light on Plisetskaya's use of the form throughout her autobiography.

    Hockeyfan - You have read Plisetskaya's bio! I haven't finished it yet but so far she has had an incredible life in the book. I hope it explains why she never skipped out on the Soviets (they were not nice to her family) when others were seeking assylum when touring western countries.

    She was and is my favorite Bravura ballerina of all time.
