    Is Alexander in any way a Russian name? I have a Russian friend that named her son Alexander but calls his Sacha - very cute.

    I had to do a quick Google search
    Anastasia
    Anna
    Annushka
    Boris
    Dimitri
    Elena
    Iona
    Isaak
    Katerina
    Lara
    Lena
    Lilia
    Mikhail
    Nikolai
    Nina
    Roman
    Sonya
    Tamara
    Tasha
    Tatiana

    These would all be easily pronounced and fairly recognizable for Australians.

    perhaps test out a couple of names with some aussie friends. ?? that way you might get a better idea of what works in English and Russian. The only Russian name I have known is Ivan, I believe that is a common name like John in English. marie.
