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

Ukrainian given names

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

As with most cultures, a person has a given name chosen by the parents. First names in East-Slavic languages mostly originate from two sources: Orthodox church tradition (which is itself of Greek origin), Catholic church tradition (which is itself of Latin origin) and native pre-Christian Slavic origin lexicons. Most names have several diminutive forms.
