Bulgarian spelling of Name[edit]

The Bulgarian spelling og her name is irrelevant - especially in the definition - it is Ok to mention it in the section about her family background, but it is NOT the first thing a person who comes to this page is interested in knowing. She doesn't speak Bulgarian, she never uses the cyrillic spelling. The one time it was discussed [[1]] the result was to keep it out even though User:Pensionero kept editwarring to insert it. ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 00:40, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Does her surname have any relation to Russia? 176.14.120.114 (talk) 06:33, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't think so, although there is always some relation between the cyrillic writing people and the slavic languages which are not written in cyrillic, like Polish. This is comparable to the interaction and relations between Italian, Spanish, French, and Portuguese speaking people. What is rather astonishing is the father's flight in 1929 because he was a communist in Bulgaria. He could have gone to the Soviet Union kind of next door. He could have been a communist in economic/social terms but might have been pro-religion which Stalin wasn't. I believe the name Rusev/Ruseva for women exists in Russia but that doesn't really prove anything as Russia is a multiethnic country. 144.136.192.10 (talk) 04:50, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
I don't think so, too. The Bulgarian family name Rusev has nothing to do with Russia. It derives from the personal name Rusi which in turn comes from Bulgarian rus meaning blond. Hope this helps. Apcbg (talk) 14:58, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Im not sure what the issue is, but if there is a different variation we do, by precedent, mention that following the name too.Lihaas (talk) 19:29, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

President or Presidenta?[edit]

It is known that our leader likes to be called "presidenta" in portuguese. Wouldn't be fair to repeat this trend in the English Wikipedia's references on her? 201.40.39.223 (talk) 12:27, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

I don't see why. Political titles are usually translated to the receiving language (e.g., Wikipedia refers to the Japanese monarch as The Emperor, and not the Mikado). Zelani (talk) 00:34, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

controversy section needs work/rewrite[edit]

The whole issue about the supposed "anti-homophobia" kits needs much greater support that this even remotely qualifies as a controversy in the first place to warrant inclusions. Additionally, the political and forum-like information repeatedly sprinkled into the article also needs to go, such as the beginning where it suggests that being a left winger should somehow make her some great ally of homosexuals, as an example. The whole section reads like a message board advocate for homosexuality-- far from encyclopedic. Whatzinaname (talk) 04:09, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
