The proper transcription for the Russian spelling provided in this entry (Татьяна) is actually Tatyana, not Tatiana. You see, the standard transcription for the letter я in the name is "ya", while "ia" and "ja" are usually considered variant transcriptions. As such, one can argue that for this particular spelling, Tatyana is the main Russian form and Tatiana is the variant transcription.

For more information about this, please see the comment that I left at the entry for Tatyana (in the main database), which is quite a bit longer and thus more useful.

This name is also used in Greece, although in Greece it doesn't necessarily always come from the Latin name Tatiana. There is also an authentic Greek name Tatiana, which is derived from Attic Greek τάττω (tatto) meaning "to place in order, to arrange, to form". Also see Tatiane, which can be a variant form of that name - and which actually has a name day in Greece.

In Greece, Tatiana is written as: Τατιάνα.

Finally, this name is also used in Georgia. Georgian sources dedicated to given names used in Georgia, list Tatiana as coming from Greek - so according to them, the name Tatiana as it is used in Georgia usually comes from the Greek name Tatiana. However, undoubtedly there are also countless cases in Georgia where the name comes from the Latin name Tatiana - probably due to the influence that Russia has had on the country, as the name Tatiana is very common in Russia (and in Russia, the name usually comes from the Latin name Tatiana).

In short: just as it is in Greece, in Georgia there are two etymologies possible for the name Tatiana.

In Georgian, Tatiana is written as: ტატიანა.
