What is a Russified Estonian name Yeah I wouldn't expect her family to still be Russian oriented. It worries me when Estonians like Jana Kuzovkova post everything on Facebook and Instagram in Russian and even reply to Estonian posts in Russian. BTW, what is an original Estonian name. I can identify the Swedish, Russian and German ones quite easily but not so much the others. Like Ani and Rüütel seem Estonian but is Kontaveit German? She looks kinda German in particular her Dad...
