 :-[ How embaressing.

I did thank her. I'm just grateful they were posted. I collect these images and place them in my daughter's scrapbook. You see, I named her Zenayda and I want her to know who I named her after. Just wanting to give her a little background on the name, so any pictures you or anyone else is able to post is very much appreciated.  ;)

Taska, I had not seen most of those before! They're great, can you get them any bigger?

Ashanti, I didn't know you named your daughter after her, how nice!

I'm a bit of a nerd. I named my first daughter, Athena Marie, after Nicholas II's daughter, and when it came down to having another one, I just thought I would name her after someone who represented all that was class and elegance for that period.  :)

I named her after Zenaida but spell it Zenayda. Just a little different, thought it looked nicer on paper. But do you know how annoying it is when people misprounce it? :P So everyone just calls her "Nayda". She's only three months old so plenty of time for people to get it right.  :)

as I know, her relatievs called her 'Kaplushka' for her elegancy. but I dont know, what does it mean...maybe it's derived 'kaplya' - a drop?..this is the only word that is similar to 'Kaplushka'

It was ONE of the nicknames mentioned in Ferrands book AND was also recounted by Princess Tatiana Wassiltchikov (later Princess Metternich, died2006) who was a contempary & friend of her grandaughter and stayed with the Princess in 1938 at Serves while recovering from an illness.
