When was Russia named Russia?
The word 'Russia' is actually English. In German 'Russia' is Russland which means 'a land of the Rus". Originally the name was 'Rus' that corresponds to the semi-legend South-Baltic tribe of Rus. We call our country "Россия" which in translitteration is 'Rossia". That name was fisrt officially proclaimed in the 15th century. But even as back as that time the country of Moscovits was called in the style of the ancient Rus. But then in the period of Empire the name Russia (Rossia) took its dominance. The stem 'Rus' (Ros) originates in the name os the tribe.

Ded Moroz, "Father Frost". ÐÐµÐ´ ÐÐ¾ÑÐ¾Ð·. Santa Claus is the prototype of Saint Nicholas, as I know, which have been transformed to Christmas personage by society and commercial. In Russia we have got the same winter personage called "Ded Moroz" who is very close to Santa …Claus - with the same white beard, red caftan and the mission of the man who brings presents for everyone The translation of Ded Moroz into English sounds as "Grandfather Frost". The roots of "Grandfather Frost" personage stems not from some of saint people, as I know, but from heathen (pagan) personage (maybe somebody like "God of winter" or "God of frost") from deep deep past. It comes with presents not at 25 of December but at night from 31 of December to 1 of January, when new year comes. The Christmas - 7 January (in Orthodoxy) = 25 December + 13 days because of Julian calendar is the pure religion holiday in Russia :-) (MORE)
