I like it spelled like this: Natascha. It's one of my best friend's name.

Natasha can also be used as a nickname for Natalya. I know a Russian girl named Natalya, but no one ever called her that because it was too formal. We always called her Natasha.

My name is Natasha and it means "Born on Christmas". Its origin is Russian. I am 13 and I have always hated my name. But now I'm starting to realize it's kind of a pretty name.

I have never been fond of this name ever since someone told me that their name was Natasha and if you spelt it backwards it said "ah-satan" I don't like having the word satan in a name.
― Anonymous User  4/25/2006
'Satan' was originally an angel. Naming your child Natasha is equal to naming it Lucy or Jennifer ('Lucifer'). If you've got any respect for the English alphabet, you won't be silly enough to spell a name backwards, unless you're part of a cult.
― Anonymous User  4/29/2006
If you had read the comment properly I didn't say that I spelt backwards or was part of a cult, it was just someone I met briefly that was bragging to everyone that her name had Satan in it and it turned me off the name.
― Anonymous User  4/30/2006
You didn't say someone was bragging about that, but that is still not nice. It is a good reason to be turned off the name, I suppose, if you did hear this woman bragging about such things. I personally like the name, it is pleasant, in a Russian way.
― Anonymous User  5/4/2006
My name's Atasha--a form of Natasha. It's kind of ironic for me because 'Natasha' means born on Christmas, when in fact, I was born in the dead center of the summer--August 8th.

Needless to say, I do not have red hair and blue-green eyes. It would look terrible on me if I did, seeing as I am of Indian (India) origin. Honestly, could you imagine a brown-skined redhead with blueish-green eyes?

My husband and I, born in the mid 60's, always associate this name with the Rocky and Bullwinkle villan, who with her "dahlink" Boris, was always "makingk trubble for moose und skvirrel".

My name is Nastassja. I guess a derivitave of the name Natasha, but none the less, I was named after Nastassja Kinski, a famous model and actress. My friends call me Tassja, pronounced Tasha, and I think it fits me well, though I neither have red hair or blue green eyes. I have black hair, naturally, and hazel eyes. Thanks for everyone's insight though!

I have this name, every other person (that is 2 people though it's getting popular now) who is a bearer of this name tends to be very senstitive. Sadly this name gets shortened to Tasha, which makes a formal upperclass name into trailer trash.

"But you have Russian name, speak Russian!".
simpegirl81  7/20/2007
It's a dimunitive of Natalia/Natalie in Russian, but it doesn't mean *anything* in Russian besides the meaning of the Latin word Natalia derives from. In Latin Natalia means something along the lines "natural". Nastassja has nothing to do with Natasha, Nastassja is Anastasia.

I have heard it as a name with Hindi origins.
Nat from Nataraj the incarnation of Shiva as The Lord of Dance. Asha from life, hope, desire. As for the judgment over Satan included in the spelling of the name, deal with it. There can be no light without the dark.
Nataraj  2/21/2008
I love the name even more now, since I've got into the work of English actress Natasha Richardson, and I would consider naming a child after her. It's quite mysterious and mythic. Love it!

The name Natasha conjures up this image of a Russian ballerina in my mind.
Akito  3/19/2008
My name is Natasha and I've always liked it! That said only new acquaintances call me Natasha as all my family and friends call me Tasha or Tash, both of which are pretty swish and seem to suit me. Can't say I've ever felt they 'dumb down' the name. Apart from the odd moustache joke (which can be quite funny sometimes!).

Plus what, I've always liked the irony of the name spelling Ah-Satan backwards yet having meanings linked with Christmas - you can't get more interesting than that!
Bil  3/28/2008
If you like this name and hate the name Nevaeh, you can name your daughter Natasha and have fun by telling all those people who tell you that they named their daughter Nevaeh because it's 'heaven' spelled backwards that you named your daughter Natasha because it's 'ah Satan' spelled backwards! This is quite a pretty name, and it always makes me think of attractive young women. It's common, so I wouldn't use it myself, and I avoid anything remotely religious anyway.

A lot of people have said Natasha is overused but I've only known one (whose younger than). Natasha Richardson is a great example of what the name can be so here's hoping she recovers as the world needs to show what all you Natashas can do.

Natasha is so pretty, on a sad note actress Natasha Richardson died in a skiing accident, and this has made me adamant to use for my daughter if I have one. My Natasha will be Natasha Jane just like Ms Richardson.

My second-oldest sister is named NaTHasha, which my mom got from this name. She was talking with her friends about baby names when she was pregnant with my sister, and one friend, who had a very bad cold, suggested Natasha. Her stuffiness made it sound like NaTHasha, which my mom liked better. My mom and sister have always gotten compliments on this name, and though she has gotten a few mispronunciations she likes it. I think it's beautiful and unique without being over-the-top, and it flows nicely with Lynne, her middle name.

I've always liked this name, it's very pleasing to the ear and a very good name for a girl born on Christmas Day.
Arcticwarrior  6/21/2009
Though I'm not a fan of Russian nicknames being used as full names in their own right (such as Katya and Anya), Natasha is one of the few that I don't mind as a legal name. It just doesn't sound quite as nicknamey to my ears as other Russian diminutive forms that just sound silly as full names.
Anyechka  8/7/2009
Also, this name is Macedonian in origin. It is also used in many Slavic speaking countries due to the relation with the Russian language.

My name is Natasha and I love it. My mum was stuck between Natasha and Natalie but chose Natasha in the end. It means 'Christmas born' which was one of the main reasons she chose it as I was supposed to be born in Christmas day but ended up five weeks early instead. However, I'm usually referred to as Tasha or Tash - even by teachers - as Natasha is a rather long name and it tends to be easier to say Tasha than Natasha. Also for the record, I don't have green eyes or natural red hair. And the whole “ah-satan” thing is silly. My mum is a devote Catholic and doesn’t care about it. Also, I am 16 and don’t drink or do drugs. Yes, I’m absolutely terrifying.

My name is Natasha, and I do have red hair and green eyes. Interesting hahaha. I love my name, always have. As far as the whole "Satan" thing, did you know that "Ah Satan sees Natasha" spelled backwards is, "Ah Satan sees Natasha"? It's a palindrome, like "Madam, I'm Adam" or "Racecar". I don't think it in any reflects on people with the name. You have to keep in mind that "Natasha" is the Angelicized version of the name, and not the orginal version or spelling. Haha I just love my name, and after reading through some of these comments I felt the need to defend it. It's silly really. Also, just to add some non-personal opinion info, I've done a bit of traveling and while in Russia everyone proclaimed that I had a Russian name that meant "born on Christmas day", yet while in Greece everyone proclaimed that I had a Greek name that meant "Resurrection". Either way, I think it's a wonderful name. (FYI, Name day for Natasha in Greece is in early April).
Awesome-MyMiddleName  12/6/2009
Before commenting, I just want to point out that I had *no* idea this was becomming an Eastern European slang term for prostitutes.

That said. Natasha is honestly one of the sexiest names I've ever heard. And I don't mean trashy, rather I cannot picture an unattractive girl/woman named Natasha--it's as if the name already guarantees beauty/appeal.
erb816  12/27/2009
I like this name. I think it sounds quite regal. However my friend Natasha insists on being called Tash or Tasha, which I think kills it completely! But it's just one of those names that always gets shortened, either to Tash or Nat, which I think is a shame.

I hate the name Natasha. It has got to be the most common name in Russia. It's so common, that in Turkey they have so many tacky Russian girls named Natasha coming there, that anyone really horrible, chav - looking or tacky they will call them a 'Natasha'. Calling someone a 'Natasha' isn't a real word just a slang term, but in Turkey it would be seen as a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE insult being called this.
starz26  4/14/2010
Natasha has got to be one of the most beautiful female names of all time. It has its roots in literature and religion and there are many classy, cultivated and intelligent Natashas which one can cite from history. However, like all beautiful things in life, it can be corrupted which sadly seems to be the case in Turkey for example. Had you already known this name in Turkish culture, you would have appreciated its beauty. Unfortunately, this name was introduced to you in less than romantic circumstances. Please do not let your ignorance tarnish a most noble and delicate of names.
Finalword  11/27/2010
I'm not ignorant to the roots it has in literature and religion, I am aware of them. This association with the name Natasha that I know of, doesn't necessarily have to tarnish the name for anyone else, it just does for me. This name doesn't have to be tarnished just because of my one comment. I am a small minority who thinks like this about the name Natasha, a majority of people obviously disagree with that comment of mine, as this name is used so often. I'm sorry if my previous comment came across as ignorant, it is only what I heard.

I come from a ballet family and was named in honor of Natasha Makarova. My aunt had a poster of Natasha on her wall while my mom was growing up and she thought Natasha was the most beautiful woman in the world and named me in her honor.
On the other hand my dad checked into a hotel in Dubai and the concierge asked him if he wanted a Natasha sent to his room. My dad was confused and explained he was picking up his wife and Natasha from the airport the next day. It took awhile for the concierge to explain to my dad he was asking if he wanted a Russian prostitute sent to his room.
The two had a good laugh the next day when my dad introduced me as his little Natasha.
I still consider it a beautiful name and is part of the sophisticated woman I have grown up to be. I am very happy to not have a name like, 'Misty' or 'Jennifer'. It would not fit with who I am.

My name is Natasha, and I'm quite offended by the people who are calling my name, 'Trashy' and 'Some name a stripper would have.' First of all, I didn't choose my own name. Sorry for being stuck with this 'tacky and cheap' name. Second of all, I don't want to change it. I personally like my name as I believe it sounds intelligent and elegant. My friends call me Tasha and Tash, and I don't mind. Living with this name has caused me to view the original name as pretty, and the nicknames as fun. Although I don't like the people who have decided to insult my name, I personally enjoy having it. Go Natasha!

I love my Natasha. I don't like when people call me tasha, tash, Nat, Natee, or Nat Nat. I understand my loved one and friends mean well when they do so. I am hurt by the things that people said on this page about my name so much so I want to change my name. I believe in God and I know evil exists in this world but to have it in my name! I cried. I also took in all the positive remarks made and decided to keep my name as is. My Mother had no idea why my grand father named me Natasha. I was born in summer and with brown hair and hazel eyes. I know some people just say what they are taught or lived. We are Roman Catholics and why I got this name is beyond me. Grandpa has died and cannot ask him, Grandma doesn't know so, I made a conscious decision to be very careful when it came to naming my 5 sons. We as parents need to be very careful and also responsible with the naming of our children. Our name is how we begin to know ourselves, who we are. When we first introduce ourselves it's our name that says it all.

I've always had mixed feelings about being named Natasha. I was born in Europe to American parents that fell in love with the name. Between watching Rocky and Bulwinkle on tv and hearing stories about my birth country, I felt special as a child.
As a teenager and young adult, the name embarrassed me. SUB-Teachers would ignore me during roll call because I didn't "look like a Natasha." Which is ironic because I have black hair, green eyes, and olive skin. Pretty much the Russian standard. Then classmates would tease that my name sounded like a slutty name (stripper, prostitute, porn star). When I was in customer service in my early 20s, customers always had opinions to share with me, but never about my coworkers. Irritating.
Now, I feel as I did growing up. I love my name. It suits me. When I eat Indian or meet an IT tech, they always remember my name. The Russian shoe cobbler says my name beautifully and remembers me. The name exudes mystery and intrigue. Those that think poorly of my name are typically uneducated and are not cultured.
