Need this name so badly, it may be common in Russia! But it's a great name way better than the one I have now. I will change my name when I'm old enough.

Aleksandr has almost hundreds of nicknames, pet names and diminutives, including - Sasha and Lyosha, of course, but also Shusha, Shuya, Shurik, Sanya, Shura, Leksa, Alek, Alechka, Alchik, Leksya, Sanik, Shanik, Shasha... and many more, for various levels of friendship and familiarity.

My favourite is Shurik. It was made famous as the nickname of the protagonist of a Soviet comedy, and many Aleksandrs of that time wanted to be nicknamed Shurik, or so I'm told. A teacher of mine has a son named Aleksandr they call Shurik, and he's named for this protagonist.

Aleksandr is very, very common in Russia. Moreover, apparently it's bouncing back as an extremely popular name choice for Russian baby boys.

This name is very widespread among the Russian men. I think the most of people in Russia have 5-10 acquaintances or friends named Aleksandr. Personally I don't like this name because it is very popular in my country.

It seems to be one of the most common names in Russia, I know at least 12 Sashas, Shuras, Shuriks and Aleks. But it is still a pretty name!
