Anastasia: L.G.D Errors...
« Reply #30 on: January 22, 2005, 09:43:35 PM »
did you notice in Anastasia: the last grand duchess there were a lot of errors? like calling the Ipatiev house the impatiev house? and as well as in the actual book...
i wondered if anyone else caught that..
It would be cool as well if they made a diary for each of the children i a spinof series...

Wasn't Alexei nicknamed Alix at some point?


Wasn't the tsarina called both sunbeam and sunny as a child?
I recall that someone said they called Alexei Sunbeam after is mother.
???

No, because then people take them as real historical documents.

I e-mailed the author about all the errors.  She didn't seem to care much!

I think 'Agooweeone' is actually English run together: A good wee one! (There is no w sound in Russian, so it would be strange if Russian babies learning to talk used w sounds in their burblings - I don't mean infants making all possible sounds, but when they are starting to make sounds specific to their own language.)

I'm all for fellow "fans" of the Imperial Family thinking of their favorite members by whichever name they chooes, but I prefer the names that they, themselves would have used.

I have to be honest: "Lex" is modern, Western European or American and sounds like the name of some boy who's face would be plastered all over teen magazines...not the name of a royal Russian Grand Duke and Tsarevich who live 100 years ago.  

For me, I like to learn about my favotire historical figures by finding out as much as I can about who they were.  Alexei Nikolaievich was many things, but "Lex" wasn't one of them.

I apologize if my honesty is off-putting, but I get the feeling I may be one of the older members on the board and so I'm at an age where I prefer to speak plainly.  If that's too much to handle, let me know and I'll tone it down.

I think the real message is that TODAY in modern times, the name ALEXEI not our Alexei, might have been called Lex. Mandie, I think you can call him whatever you want  ;)

In America maybe, by non-Russians. But not in Russia.

That's true.
It's interesting though - in English we seem to shorten names to make them into the 'pet' forms, but in Russian they seem to lengthen them. (There are exceptions of course, but this seems to be the general rule.)

That is interesting, I think it is just the Russian culture...

I dunno, i guess ppl have weird/cute nicknames for ppl iof they like it or not. Alexei was called Alyosha, tiny, baby, alyoshenka, sunshine, sunbeam, alexei the 'terrible', fluff (when he was lil) precious, little one, and many other different ways to variate alyosha...he prolly was never called lex cuz it wasnt around then really, but he mighta liked it, who knows?  ;)
