Santa Luna, Dominic and other unusual names of Ukrainian stars' children

Celebrities who were creative when choosing a name for a child.

Choosing a name for a child is always an exciting moment in a parent's life. They study everything about it: from its euphony and origin to how it can affect the child's personality and future. There is currently no scientific evidence that a name really shapes a person's destiny. This means that there are no refutations either.

Some mothers and fathers want the baby's name to be unusual and sometimes mysterious, and Ukrainian celebrity parents are no exception. Read more in the article by OBOZ.UA.

1. Jamala

Ukrainian singer Susana Jamaladinova (Jamala) and her husband Seit-Bekir Suleimanov are of Crimean Tatar-Armenian descent. Thus, they chose the appropriate names for their sons: Emir-Rahman and Selim-Girai. In Russian, Emir means "ruler" and Rahman means "merciful". The star explained her other name as follows, "Selim-Girai is a name with historical roots. This is one of the main figures in the history of the Crimean Khanate, an outstanding ruler, beloved by both the people and the nobility. My husband liked the name Selim, and I liked the name Giray."
