Map of names of Ukrainian children

Map of names of Ukrainian children

In 2013, the most popular names for children in Kiev were Sofia, Maria, Alexander and Ivan.

But among the non-standard names for girls were popular Aya, Aisu, Elektra and Margin. Among the boys were the names of Arash, Dzenislav, Junior, Ishana and Zorro. Earlier, a boy born in the Transcarpathian region, was named Berezhansky Yanukovych Ivanovich, and in Lviv - Euromaidan Tihun.

The names of Stalin, Octobrin and Noiabrin (in honor of revolutions), Gertrude (the heroine of labor), Kim (the Communist International of Youth), Stalin (Stalin, Lenin) were popular in the USSR.

UDP 16/01/2014 Deputies Chamber and Tedeev decided to ban their own names

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine registered a bill to ban the appropriation of unusual names for children - "Draft Law on Amendments to Article 146 of the Family Code of Ukraine (concerning the definition of the child's name)."

The document is an amendment to the Family Code. The authors of the bill are deputies from the Party of Regions Elbrus Tedeev and Vladimir Misik and deputy from the faction "UDAR" Arthur Palatny. The document is aimed at protecting the rights of the child. It is registered under the number 3881 of January 14, 2014.

The explanatory note to the bill states that children should not be given names that consist of names of inanimate objects, fictional characters, geographical names, flora and fauna, titles, diseases, symbols, figures or abbreviations.

In addition, children can be given no more than two names, unless this is the custom of national minorities, to which the mother or father belong.

In the event that the registry office refuses to register a child with a particular name, parents can challenge it in court.

A masterpiece of legislative non-conformism with common sense, in particular, reads:

"1) in part to a friend of statti 146 viklasts in the following editions:

"2. Dietin mozhe bouti is given no more than two dames, yakshchlo інше не випливає із звичаю національної меншини, to anchor mothers і (abo) batko. Ім'я дитини повино відповідати її статі. Ditin can not be given ім'я, що складається з назв неживих предметів, вигаданих персонажів, географічних назв, flory, fauny, title, horse, one-hour letters, symbolic abo (та) digits, abreviations. "

Creators of this ingenious creativity may not have studied at school. For there, even in the primary classes, they tell where the human names come from. And what they mean.

It is not necessary for the professor to have an idea that the absolute majority of common names in Ukraine are the names of inanimate objects translated from Latin, Hebrew or Ancient Greek. Well, and other languages, living and dead. For example, as you know, Peter, this is a stone. Irina is peace, peace, Michael is like God, Victoria is a victory, and so on. Well, you understand how many names run the risk of being banned.

And by the way, it turns out that, based on his own law, Tedeev himself personally wants to ban his own name - Elbrus. Which, on the one hand, in translation from Tatar, means "shining", and, in addition, on the other, Elbrus - the name of the mountain. The subject, you will agree, is not quite alive.

Apparently, the same motives - to wipe out his own name from future birth certificates - were also guided by deputy Palatny. His name is Arthur - if anyone does not know, in translation from Celtic means - a big (or mighty) bear.

Mysik - and he Vladimir - still somehow can justify the right to bear his name, according to the bill. Although, however, if to sue, according to the second part of the bill, which reads:

"2) The statute 146 is supplemented with a part 4 of this clause:

"4. In the times when the agency is re-accrediting the acts of the civic in the appropriation of the ditin іmenі, it does not meet the wives of the couple 2 stієї stattі, by the Batkіs (abо one з батьків) may be bargained to the organ of the vichy рівня before the court. "

- indicating in the statement of claim that Vladimir - this is the geographical name, which is proudly borne by the city in the Russian Federation - then Volodya will no longer be in Ukraine.

Of course, if the domestic legislators were more educated or legally savvy, they could write in their dubious quality and no less questionable relevance the bill and some conceptual phrase like "Dietin can not be given, but literally stored in the name of non-living things with a sovereignty ", But, however, in this case the law could be applied extremely ambiguously.

Of course, no one cherishes illusions at the expense of lawmaking insanity that suddenly surged on respected MPs. We understand that the unexpected relevance of this project, submitted to the Verkhovna Rada for consideration in the context of an unaccepted budget, un-voted "visa-free" laws, etc. Due to the recent appearance in the list of Ukrainian names of EuroMaidan. Which now, as we see, can be prohibited.

But, proceeding from the text of the bill of Tedeev, Palatny and Mysyk, the child can still be called the name of Yanukovich, following the example of the inhabitants of Transcarpathia.

And thanks for that :)

Completely FOR, I have seen enough of the modern tendency to call children "miracle" names, parents joke and trend, so that in FB they are poached, stand out, and think that the child has to live with that name, apparently the brain does not have enough neurons ... And about Elbrus, a separate parable ... There's a question in the very idea!
