Are you by any chance Romanian? Your name is in Romanian.

It's a play on a famous Romanian, Radu cel Frumos.  Mischa is my real name, though.  But no, I am not Romanian.

Traditionally, yes.  But since the 80's Michelle has entered the common parlance, and Mischa works as a nickname for Michelle as well.
