Warrior Names

The rich history and culture of the country are reflected in the names which children are given at the birth. Names that mean warrior or those having relations to something warlike are found among masculine ones, as well as among woman ones.
Moreover, the ancestor of a fighter or a soldier could be called Warrior. Some of the saints along with names after the nickname had the designation of their features or occupation: Ivan Postnik, Ivan the Warrior, Zosima the Warrior, etc. Other semi-literate priests mistakenly called a baby not with a Saint’s name, but with his nickname; and there were people with the name Warrior.
