Tatiana Nicholaievna / Re: Tatiana's Name
« on: January 13, 2009, 03:53:30 PM »
Thank you Ally and Irina! :)  I didn't think it ment Saint anyway, but since I am new I just wanted to double check first. Also, about Tatiana's name, I would have to agree with Georgiy - many female names do come from the male version, like Samuel and Samantha, Paul and Pauline, or in this case, Tatian and Tatiana.

I wish I could read Czech/Slovak. :(  Even though I can't read it, I can just guess that it is well written. By the way, your website is wonderful! There's so much information! :)  Also, your coloured photos are very well done.

Olga Nicholaievna / Re: Tsarina Olga!?!?
« on: January 12, 2009, 10:08:49 PM »
I think Olga would have made a great Tsarina, she was very intelligent and she knew about politics. Since she was not a harsh person, but instead a really kind and gentle person, she would really care about all the people. I also agree with steph34241, I wonder if she would have been strong enough to rule her country. After all, it was, and still is, the largest country in the world. She would have been better as a Constitutional Monarch-- like Queen Elizabeth II is.

I wonder if OTMA ever used wigs for their plays?  :D

Tatiana Nicholaievna / Re: Tatiana's Name

Actually, I found a website that said Tatiana means "A Russian Saint". Do you think this is true? I know that the Romanovs were often named after Saints, but I've never heard of the name actually meaning Saint. The link is http://www.zelo.com/firstnames/index.asp Just search Tatiana and you'll find the information. Also, if you click on the Popularity section, scroll to the bottom and click where it says CLICK HERE, you can see lots of crazy names! One was "Eadwardsone"!

Everybody here is so good at colouring black and white photos! They look so realistic! Keep up the good work.

My parents are half German and I learn German every Saterday. Does that count? If you're going to write to me in German, please use easy words, as I'm not really that good at translating. Until then, Aufwiedersehen!

Hello! I'm new to the Alexander Palace Forum. My name is Jennifer. I live in Canada, in the province of Ontario. My favourite subjects are history, reading and writing. I speak English and a bit of German. Right now I'm in grade 5. I was born in November though, so I'm about a year younger than my classmates. I am looking forward to posting more messages.
