Eastern Slavic naming customs are the traditional way of identifying a person's given name and patronymic name in Russia and some countries formerly part of the Russian Empire or the Soviet Union. It is named after the East Slavic language group that the Russian language belongs to. They are also found occasionally in the Balkans among older generations. Eastern Slavic parents select a given name for a newborn child. Most first names in East Slavic languages originate from two sources:. Almost all first names are single. Doubled first names as in, for example, French , like Jean-Luc are very rare and are from foreign influence. Most doubled first names are written with a hyphen: Mariya-Tereza. Being highly synthetic languages , Eastern Slavic treats personal names as grammatical nouns and apply the same rules of inflection and derivation to them as for other nouns.

He has millions of Russian followers on social media - many in their early 20s or younger - and his campaign group's anti-corruption videos have reached millions.
