    Well, I have to say it would have never crossed my mind, but they "might" have just gotten the names from them indeed.

    Why? Because let me tell you, a "Maia" name for a Japanese -american parents born girl is more than unusual. And on top of that, her brother is...Alex.

    And two women: Domnina and Khoklova. That would be epic.

    Are you implying they were named after Maya Usova and Alexander Zhulin? I've never thought of that before..

    I don't think that's likely. I've never heard of their parents being ice dancing fans, and it seems like both of them entered the sport by chance when they wanted to learn how to skate for birthday parties they said in an interview a while back.

    But the idea is amusing and I've thought about it before, and you never know!

    I remember that, too. I wonder what kind of social circle their parents belonged to that gave "skating parties" for their children's birthdays.
