So, I counted in the PS only 578 unique normative names – 406 male (70 %) and 172 female (30 %). Let me remind you that there are 61 % of men in the PS, 39 % of women. We can say that the diversity of male names is higher than the diversity of female names.

The vast majority of normative names are names from Christian Orthodox namespace, which marks the great spread of Christianity in all social groups and the complete ousting of pagan names from use.
