Tatiana Nicholaievna / Re: Tatiana's Name

Hi,

My name is Tanya.  For many years I would look in baby books for my name.  I didn't (and still don't) often find it.  When I would, it usually said "meaning unknown."  "Short form of Tatiana" and "of Slavic origin" were always in the notation.  Recently is when I have found the notations that it means "Faerie Queen."  Of course being a rather mystical pixie myself I like this idea.  But I will assure you that I have seen it more than one place.  Although it is very possible that it has been confused for Titania in Shakespeare.  Happens often.

Dulcinea

Wherever you look, no meaning of the name Tatiana can be found, and it certainly does not mean Faerie queen.

Tatiana, Olga, Anastasia on far right.

That's what I was thinking.
But who is the little boy (3rd from left) next to (I think) Alexei?

Sorry for my late reaction, this is indeed the one.

I've seen the pic of Demidova and three of the grand duchesses, but I can't find it. :(

Where did you find this one? He looks sad but very cute in it :)

Another passion of HM is dance,modern dance,and she's a strong advocate of that Art.

Does she dance herself too? Or does she just like to watch?
The only dance I can imagine her doing is the 'Kabouterdans' with her eldest grandchildren ;D

what very srange swings they had.

I don't think it's a swing, but a round iron thing that spins, and that has these ropes on it, to hang on.
A sort of 'carrousel' (don't know if that word is used in English :-/)

I was pretty sure it was 1907 (I saved it on my computer as 1907), but now that I'm looking at it again, it could also be 1908 :-[, because he's already wearing pants instead of skirts.
Shall I post a little piece of the picture, so the search will be a little easier?

And Sarahelizabeth, that's a great picture you posted! I hadn't seen it before. I really must go browse Beinecke further ;D
