Re: Where is Kristelowka/Kristelowha? #russia

Thank you, Michael. I suspect the place is the one Giannis mentions above (Kristinovka). 

Yes, the Kh/Christ connection certainly makes more sense than some kind of "crystal" variant. And I'm thinking that since "L" and "N" are both alveolar consonants, that would explain the KristeL connection to  KristiN.

Sincerely,
Jay Gordon
