It is not surprising that a celebrity with her husband Jan Abramov came up with a name for her children. Safina's eldest daughter is Alsou's maiden name, but with emphasis on the second syllable. This name was invented for baby Yang as a token of gratitude to Alsou for changing her maiden name to his. But for the middle daughter of Mikella, they picked up the name together: they read a lot of literature and searched for a beautiful rare name. Well, they managed to surprise!

Two years ago, Alsou became a mother for the third time. Why she called her son Raphael is unknown. And it seems that mother of many children does not want to explain this.
