Writing Adolescent Fiction / Character names / Ukrainian - Wikibooks, open books for an open world

Usage note [edit]

Most Ukrainian first names resemble Russian names, but with their own form and spelling, for example, Svitlana and Vadym instead of Svetlana and Vadim. Ukrainian names are transcribed into English in many different ways (the Ukrainian equivalent for Andrei can be spelt Andrii, Andrij, Andriy and Andryi), and the variations are given here. Any Russian name may be used by Ukrainians, and sometimes they will use the Russian rather than the Ukrainian form, so that there are Ukrainians named both Olha and Olga, Bohdan and Bogdan, Kostyantyn and Konstantin, Oleh and Oleg, Olexander and Aleksandr. / P>

Hypothermia - definition of hypothermia by The Free Dictionary
You have been exposed to the cold and they are distressed, confused, have slow, shallow breathing or they are unconscious, they may have severe hypothermia.

Surnames ending in -ov, -ev, -in or -sky for males become -ova, -eva, -ina or -ska for females, so that the wife or daughter of Olexander Senkov would use the surname Senkova. Names with other endings do not change though, so that Anatoliy Bondarenko's wife is Olena Bondarenko, and their daughter is Nataliya Bondarenko. Middle names are given in a fashion like that used in Russia, with -ovych (sons) or -ivna (daughters) being the suffixes added to the father's name: the children of Mykhaylo Dmytrovych Petrytsky would be named Pavlo Mykhaylovych Petrytsky and Iryna Mykhaylivna Petrytska . Pavlo's children would use the middle name Pavlovych and Pavlivna, and so on. A few father's names change irregularly when inherited middle names: Yakivych (Yakovych / Yakivna), Illia (Illich / Illivna), Lvov (Lvovych / Lvivna) and Luka (Lukych / Lukivna).
