Usages: Soviet, Russian

Meaning: Derived from Russian октябрь (oktyabr) meaning "October". This name was created by Communist parents who were eager to reject traditional names, and was used in order to commemorate the October Revolution of 1917 and the creation of the (now former) Soviet state in 1922. A known bearer of this name was Oktyabrina Voronova (1934-1990), a Russian poetess of Sami descent.
