Ukrainian names are given names that originated in Ukraine. In addition to the given names, Ukrainians also have patronymic and family names (surnames; see: Ukrainian surnames).

Ukrainian given names[edit]

Diminutive and hypocoristic forms native to the Ukrainian language have either an empty inflexional suffix (Гринь, Сень) or the affixes -o, -e, -ik (Славко, Грицько, Славця, Грицуня, Андрійчик, Петрик).

As in most cultures, a person has a given name chosen by parents. First names in East-Slavic languages mostly originate from one of three sources: Orthodox church tradition (which derives from sources of Greek origin), Catholic church tradition (of Latin origin), or native pre-Christian Slavic origins. Most names have several diminutive forms.
