I’m sure you know the source of this one: The 2014 Winter Olympics, which were held in the Russian resort city of Sochi. The games began two years ago today, in fact.
The settlement was named after the Sochi River in the 1890s. The river name is derived somehow from the name of the Circassian people (“Cherkess” in Russian) who once inhabited the region.
What are your thoughts on the baby name Sochi? Would you use it as a girl name or as a boy name?
