Great fun fact yet Surprising. Every girl I know in Colombia is either named Paola, Andrea, Leidy, Jhoana, Natalia or some combination/variarition of those names.

Props for the research.

A lot of Colombian women and girls seem to be named Olga or Tatiana. I always thought those names were Russian. I'm curious if there is any history behind?
