Re: Are "Muni" and "Munya" nicknames? For what name? #names
My maternal grandmother’s official name was Maria Solomonovna PRITIKINA (Russian spelling: Мария Соломоновна Притыкина) 1903-1974 from Oster, Ukraine. But everybody called her Mania ( Manya, Маня). I wouldn’t know how her father was nicknamed but she named one of her son’s Solomon, after him and everybody called him Monia or Mon’ka (Monya, Моня, Монька)
