      Stoyan is a great Macedonian name, and it doesn't sound bad in English

        I have given this topic a lot of thought, so you are in luck I have done the hard work for you. Do you live in the Diaspora? English speaking? or Macedonia?

        All my name suggestions are names that translate well between Macedonian and English


        Matej : Mathew
        Marko: Mark
        Luka: Luke
        Jovan: John
        Gjorgia: George
        Mihail: Michael
        Stefan: Steven
        Hristijan: Christian
        Nikola: Nicholas
        Ilija: Elijah
        Gavril: Gabriel
        Aleksandar: Alexander
        Philip: Philip
        Petar: Peter
        Damjan: Damien
        Pavel: Paul

        Those are all the ones that can be used easily in both English and Macedonian. Now if you want to go traditional then I couldn't even scratch the surface.

          Where are you based? If in AU, go to your local Macedonian Church and ask for the little calendars, on the back of them you'll find a list of traditional Macedonian male and female names.

            Have you thought about naming your kid after the name of the saint relevant to your kids date of birth?

            Bit of tradition is always good, that’s just my opinion. I wish you all the best..

                  I see Amphipolis was trying to be cute.

                  Olympia is a name on this ancient Macedonian names list. It's convenient that I wrote about an Olympia in my Macedonians in America book. Here's a snippet about Olympia Reges in Washington, DC from the 1960s. The part in bold is probably the most important part for this conversation.

                  Moreover, sometimes Macedonian-Americans who had no official political standing (and who had no intention of making any political impacts) managed to make political statements, patriotic statements, and etiquette statements all at the same time. During the Kennedy Administration in the 1960s, for example, Supreme Court Justice William Douglas, Interior Secretary Steward Udall and a bunch of other important national figures trekked 25 miles up the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal in Washington, D.C. and Maryland to raise money for the canal’s restoration. But “it was a rainy, miserably muddy day” and the group of 40 decided to stop for a break at Old Angler’s Inn, a restaurant owned by Olympia Reges.488

                  Olympia had just spent all her expendable savings to buy new furniture, carpeting and decorations for her place. So, when the political brass came in to rest, without spending any money, and without being respectful to the cleanly environment at Olympia’s restaurant, she kicked all the politicians out. “Nobody comes into my place dressed like a tramp,” said Olympia. “It doesn’t matter who they are. If they would have asked, I would have made arrangements. But they just barged in here as though they felt they owned the place. It was shameful. I was embarrassed for them.”489

                  Political commentators and politicians blasted her in the media for her “lack of respect for public officials” and her ungracious attitude toward the businessmen and politicians who made it possible for her to succeed in this country. The Kennedy administration simply laughed at her peasant understanding of how to treat officials. But hundreds of ordinary women from around the country wrote her letters of support, envious of the opportunity she had to stick it to the man.

                  And when Olympia was being interviewed for this act of political rebellion, the interviewer mistook her for a Greek. As he stated, he learned his lesson: “But Olympia Reges, not a Greek, but a Macedonian, she will tell you in no uncertain terms, is not a lady to be trifled with.”491 In one gesture, the Macedonian, Olympia Reges, taught American politicians about respect, power and the Macedonian identity.
                  So cheers! This one is to ethnic Macedonians with modern names and ancient names!

                    I tend to ignore most of this person's comments. And did so in this case until now. But adopting ancient Macedonian names such as these seems so strange. Yet Greece did precisely that in the 1800's. I could imagine some Old Albanian speaking grandparents getting their noses out of joint because their New Greek progeny called their kid Demosthenes or something.

                    I am not sure Macedonians would be willing to delude themselves en masse about their preceding 2000 years of history and evolution.

                      So, well, some names work so well in both languages.
                      "Slave" perhaps doesn't.

                      But I heard a kid called "Blaze" and it sounded cool ... like FIRE .... his Dedo was Blazhe. Some Macedonian names sound quite interesting and do not need translating nowadays ... it's more common nowadays to have more interesting names.

                      Here is an African American name:
                      N-a

                      yes .... NaDASHa, I knew you all said it the right way.

                        I thought the same thing as I wrote Slave (ah how becoming). Blaze is popular now with yuppy white people.

                        I already have my kids named picked out, but I need 2 boys and 2 girls to make it work. Check it out.

                        Can't have 1 kid because they will be spoiled and weird. 2 kids aren't enough. 3 sucks for the middle child who ends up fucked up for life. So 4 kids it is.

                        Mihail - Michael - Mikey
                        Matej - Mathew - Matt
                        Mila - Mila - Mila (Dads name was Milcho)
                        Magdelena - Magdalene - Maggy

                        Its easy on my ocd. 4 is an even number, 2 boys 2 girls, They all have Macedonian English, and nick names. All begin with the same letter. And I can call them M&M's. Or they can all be MP's

                        Who said I'm not fun

                          I live in Melbourne and have a list of names but I have lots of uncles and cousins, Blaze, stoche, stojan and so on. Was looking for potential names I haven't come across.
