That post on Yuri Gagarin reminded me of something. In 1982, Soviet newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda reported that the most popular baby names in U.S.S.R. were Yelena* and Sergei. Other names registered that year (and translated into English) included:

  • Genius
  • Electron
  • Grace the Unwashed
  • Hooray for Yuri Gagarin

*Yelena happens to be the name of Yuri Gagarin’s firstborn daughter. His younger daughter is Galina.
