Comments for VASILISA:

In Russia it is a very very old folk story. There are two Vasilisas. Vasilisa the Beautiful and Vasilisa the Wise. As told Vasilisa is one of the most oldest female names in Russia. It is considered to be very rare so therefore it is also very beautiful. In Greek it means 'Queen/Princess'.

In Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series, Moroi Princess Vasilisa is the last surviving Dragomir.

This is such a beautiful name. My Russian professor said that, outside of the fairy tale, you rarely ever hear it on an actual Russian. I like how it's a very uncommon name without being some made-up monstrosity.

I think this is a really strange, odd, exotic and beautiful name! Very usable. :)

I have loved this name since I read the VA books. It Is one of the only Russian names I would consider using. So pretty! And not in the top 1000 anywhere, not even in Russia were it originated.

It looks like the name of a type of disease to me.

One of the oldest Russian names! Vassa could be the diminutive.

The first time I heard this name, or more precisely, read it, I absolutely loved it. But I thought at that time that Vasilisa was just a name, that found his source by the big fantasy of Rachelle Mead, the writer of Vampire Academy.
It is by accident that I found this name here. And it surprised me, that this was a REAL name. I liked it, because it seemed to be a name that was exotic and rare in use, if this name was a real one. In my mind's eye the owner of this name was such royal with, what's called, a classical beauty.
I know now that this name is true, but still, this name is my favorite. Just because it sounds to me, for a time where Tsars where ruling in Russia. :)
