    Thank you! I write a web-comic with Russian and Kazakh characters and this will help with naming some of them! (But I also wonder what the most common names are for adults?)

  2. Thank you Meredith for your comment.
    The most common adult Kazakh names I would say:
    Male: Azamat, Nurlan, Talgat, Askar,Baurzjan.
    Female: Aigul, Gulnara,Sholpan.

    Most Russian names have Greek origin and are different from Kazakh ones. Most common adult Russian names:
    Male: Alexandr, Vladimir, Mihail, Sergei,
    Female: Anna, Maria, Natalia, Tatiana, Irina

    Good luck with your web-comic project. It would be great to have a look at it when it's ready))

  3. This is awesome! I write a baby name blog and I was looking for some Kazakh names. This was really helpful.

  4. nice posting for this site...

  5. A pleasant and simple sounding name which is easy to write and pronounce is always considered a good option in choosing a name for your child.
