she would have have gone to Russian forums if it was about Russian name
if someone could tell me what the diminutive "Masha"/"Macha" stands for when it is NOT given to a woman but to a man.
Well, "Masha" in case of a woman is a Russian diminutive, not Polish, so I thought I'll make it lear for GoldenSummer.
for sure it's not about that name,
I'm just sharing the info, Wulkan.
I don't know why the OP is asking this question so I share whatever I can find.
It could be, for example, someone's nickname, and not a diminutive form of a name.
nobody is named like that even if the name exists in the calendar :-)
True, but, on the other hand, some parents can be very "creative" about their children's names so you never know lol
