1. The name in the historical part consists of the names of princes and gentry. There is no noticeable difference between them (it was not already in the earlier Pechersky synodikon).

2. In the current part, one can distinguish the names of laymen and monks. The laymen’s namespace shows a gradual change in popularity compared to the Pechersky synodikon.

3. The namespace of monk and especially nuns were significantly enriched in comparison with the Pechersky synodikon by using names from the Old Testament and rare names from the early Christian age.

4. The naming of the nuns has been significantly increased due to names that have traditionally been considered and are considered male.
