("If you mean the first one launched, It was named "Sputnik 1".)

Here we go again... NO It Wasn't! The first Spacecraft with a human to go into space was the Russian Satellite called 'Vostok', or 'Vostok 3KA'.

'Sputink', is the Russian word for 'Satellite', it was NOT the Name of the spacecraft.

imagine if every Russian called 'Apollo 18' ... 'Satilite' with a heavy russian accent... DRrr Not.

Now to address the question, name of a russian spaceship? there are many...
