I'm surprised that Oksana doesn't have something to do with Roksana, the Russian form of Roxana. Oksana is so similar to Roksana, it's just missing the r.

Oksana Baiul won the Olympic Gold Medal for women's figure skating in 1994. She couldn't have won it in 1996, because the Summer Olympics were that year.

I'm from Australia and down here we have really twisted ways of pronouncing SOME words/names. I'm from a Russian/Jew/Fiji-Indian dominated community and we have a lot of Okasanas (ox-ah-na) but we pronounce them ok-say-na and they get really pissed off.

I like the name very much. But like many Ukrainian and Russian names, it would be butchered by westerners either from ignorance or malice. I am of Ukrainian and Russian descent and I can understand why they get angry when people keep mangling they name, because that angers me too. Growing up, I came very close to punching a few people who kept mocking me because of my name. I would definitely give a child named Oksana a middle name she could use to spare her the teasing or worse she may run into.

I have liked the name Oksana ever since I heard it during the Olympics. It has a wonderful sound and should be easy for anyone to pronounce or spell.

This name makes me think of a gold digger from Russia who is beautiful but mean. The association with Oksana Grigorieva makes this name even worse.

We named our daughter Ksana, which is a shortened version. It is pronounced Kuh-saw-na.
