Characteristics of Natalia
Etymology & Historical Origin - Natalia
Natalia is a Russian name, also from the Latin “Natalia” derived from the late Latin word “natalis” which translates to ‘birthday’ (and in particular, Christ’s birthday, or Christmas day). The Russian Natasha is actually considered a pet form of Natalia. Not as popular as Natalie in the English-speaking world, Natalia is a four-syllable, Russian inspired option to its more traditional English sister. Like Noel, it’s been a favorite among Christmas babies.
Popularity of the Name Natalia
Natalia has not experienced the same popularity as Natalie in the United States, but it’s been around a long time, nonetheless. The name first appears on the American popularity charts in 1925, but quickly disappears. Natalia basically goes dormant for 40 years before reemerging in 1975. From that point on, the name gradually climbs the charts and in the past five years has been hovering around the #100 position for most popular girls’ names. It should be pointed out that the Natalie, Nicole, Naomi names are quite in style today. Natalia is another option with a little Russian panache.
