Okay crash, there are 1000 better reasons to learn Russian than this one, but at least you should learn how amazingly easy learning the Cyrillic alphabet is, so here's a short lesson. Marilyn Monroe is listed as: мисс Декабрь. The first word мисс is the English word Miss. M gets the same sound as in English и is the i sound and both cc's have the soft S sound like C sometimes makes in English.

The second word is Декабрь the Russian version of the latin word December So мисс Декабрь means Miss December. The first letter of the word Декабрь is the Russian D sound, same as English then ека said about like the letters EKA would be in English in English. This cute little letter б make the B sound as in Boy. This letter that looks like the lower case English p "р" is the Russian rolled R. The last letter is the soft sign, that makes the previous letter sound softer ь.

The Russian alphabet is MUCH more phonetic than English. So if you are a mature adult who is up to looking at a 1953 Playboy centerfold, then check out мисс Декабрь 1953 [Miss December 1953] Мэрилин Монро http://www.maw.ru/pbp.php?p=648
