Model Names: Haute and Unpronounceable
i just love how some model names are so hard to pronounce right off the bat, and how 'haute' or posh they sound... the right name can make or break a girl sometimes it depends on one's native language, but the reality is that most of these girl's names are made up

some examples:

omahyra mota
sasha pivovarova
snejana onopka
du juan

Is Sasha's last name really made up?

I heard about a Russian thing where girls have to attach 'ova' to their father's last names when they get their name, hence Maria Sharapova, Anna Kournikova, etc. whereas boys just attach 'ov', like Sergei Federov.

So I always figured Sasha's father's name was Pivova.

Querelle is not Querelle's real name, it is actually something much more common, I just can't remeber what right now...

Natasha Poly's full (proper) name is Natasha Polevchtchikova..
