Тома is either a diminutive form of the female name Тамара (in nominative) or genitive of a masculine name Том
I have never heard of 'Toma' in Ukrainian cultural names. This is the first time I have seen or heard it here on Duolingo! :/
Duo should choose more common and appropriate Ukrainian names...ie: Marusia, Darka, Darusia, Olya, Yaroslava (Slavka), Volodymyra (Vlodzya), Mariyka, Olena, Hanya, Tatiana (Tania), Anastasia (Nastya), Bohdanna, Svitlana (Svita), Vika (Viktoria), etc....
You know, I have never seen any woman who has that strange name Volodymyra (Vlodzya). However I have met enough Toma's. So it seems it is a much more Ukrainian name than Volodymyra is in modern Ukraine.
'Vlodzya' is a nickname for 'Volodymyra' (the feminine version of 'Volodymyr'.)
FYi: it was MY aunt's name. :)
If the name is Tom than Тома should have a provided translation as Tom's
I don't think there is lots of Tom in Ukraine ;D And I pretty sure almost every Tom in Ukraine came there from another country :D
So, It's the short version of the name Тамара (Tamara).
Dude it's the 21st century. There's no reason why Tom would be an uncommon name in Ukraine.
Of all the 'Tamara's I've known, there never was a diminutive form. They all used 'Tamara' or the English version 'Tammy'. I have heard people use 'Mara' for 'Tamara' though. Never 'Toma'. I'm not sure where that came from.
El Sabooz, no, in English and Ukrainian the 'aunt'/'uncle' comes before the name 'Toma' or whatever the person's name is. In some cultures the 'name' comes before, but not in Ukrainian & English.
Wtf how many times can i possible get it right and its wrong fix the question and stop having it reapeat its always wrong
Must be a "Russified" version of "Tamara".... never have I used "Тома" to refer to a woman/girl called "Tамара". I've always considered "Toma" as a male name, and there weren't many "Tomas" around. "Тома,"is NOT considered as a Ukrainian name.
I think test is created by Eastern Ukrainians and they are bilingual or their native language is Russian

Olia Kara, in Ukrainian, names (and words in general) that end in я and а are generally feminine. :-)
'Toma' is the aunt's (тітка's) name. It comes before the noun 'тітка'/'aunt'.
