Name Nerds main

FOR REAL: Tasha is a short form of Natasha, which is a diminutive of the Russian name Natalya. This comes from the Latin Natalia, meaning "Christmas Day." Natasha was a prominent character in Tolstoy's War and Peace, and it's possible that it's through that book that the name was introduced to English, as it only started becoming used by English speakers at the beginning of the 20th Century.
