So true, it's sad !

You're right, Shayk isn't. However, does Shaykhlislamova sound Russian enough?



I can see why she shorten it by 3/4.



This type of thread is all about personal preferences. With that said, my preferences are in line with how Russians look. I will say Czech Republic are my favorite though.

Ummmm... yeah, definitely. I'm a straight woman, and still got a little "hot & bothered" whenever that woman danced.

No. It sounds like a Russified Turkish name. Remove the feminine suffix -ova and you have Shaykhlislam, which would be her fathers name. That isn't a Russian name.

If you look at pictures of women from areas where Turkish languages are spoken you will see some of her features in the pictures of those women. Also, her skin tone isn't Russian. Darker hair and lightly tan skin isn't uncommon, but the actual skin tone or hue differs between the Russians and Turkic people.

Turkic/Tatar women (the blonde ones mixed in with the search results are Russian or mixed)
tatar women - Google Search

Russian women
Russian women - Google Search

The results for Russian women show a few who aren't ethnic Russians because the search results are unable to distinguish between ethnic Russian and someone of another ethnic group with Russian citizenship.

At any rate, you can see the difference between Russians and Turks.

I think the Czech women are attractive too. Generally, I find women from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Czech Rep., the Baltic States, Sweden, Norway and Iceland to be my favourite. Although I prefer blondes, I've seen a few Spanish and Portuguese women with a certain look I find attractive.

I don't care for the Greek or Italian look. Most German women are just average to me, although there are a fair amount of Scandinavian-looking German women who are attractive. I think most English women just have a bland look to them.

Except that she is not Czech...she is Polish.

Otherwise I agree with you, pretty face and smoking body.

Lol. Her skin tone isn't Russian??
Pray, tell me, what is a Russian skin tone? As one myself I am quite curious.
You do realize how large Russia is and that it originated from multiple 'tribes'. Most people do not know this, but there are Russians that look Asian, there are Russians with blonde hair and fair skin, there are Russians that look middle eastern, etc. There are people in my family who look Greek, just as there are people in my family who look very fair. There is no one "look" so your examples aren't quite justified. If one goes overseas one will see how many different 'looks' there are of Russians as the country is so vast that appearances may vary depending on the region. Similarly to most other countries, however Russia might be more extreme since it is greater in area size and therefore may differ more depending on region. Tatars, Uzbeks, Mongols, Belarus, Siberians, Slavs, all have been part of ancient Russian tribes for many many centuries.
