- Comments and insights on the name Tatiana: | Edit
Tatiana is Russian for Fairy Queen/princess. The Royal Remanov Family had a daughter, Princess Tatiana. I believe the Surname Tatianus came later and is not the original meaning.
Tatiana IS NOT Russian for "fairy queen". Whoever wrote that does not really know Russian, sorry. It is just a name in Russian, and I read in multiple sources that it came from Greek and means "a person who takes care of the home". I'm not sure what author meant by Surname Tatianus, but in Russia we don't really have that one; but maybe it was not meant about Russia. My name is Tatiana) Hope this helps!

Tatiana Larina, heroine of Alexander Pushkin's epic poem "Eugene Onegin". In the poem Pushkin suggests that the name Tatiana was more common for peasants than for well-born women in the early 19th century. Pushkin's character may have inspired the Russian royal family to use the name for Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna and Princess Tatiana Konstantinovna.
