Names[eedit | eedit soorce]

Ulan-Ude wis first cried Udinskoye (У́динское) for its location on the Uda River. Frae aroond 1735, the settlement wis cried Udinsk (У́динск) an wis grantit toun status unner that name in 1775.

The name wis chynged tae Verkhneudinsk, literally "Upper Udinsk" (Верхнеу́динск), in 1783 tae differentiate it frae Nizhneudinsk ("Lawer Udinsk") lyin on a different Uda River near Irkutsk which gained toun status that year. The "upper" an "lawer" refer tae positions o the twa ceeties relative tae each ither, no the location o the ceeties on their respective Uda rivers. Verkhneudinsk lies at the mouth o its Uda, i.e. the lawer end, while Nizhneudinsk is alang the middle stretch o its Uda.

The current name wis given tae the ceety in 1934 an means "red Uda" or "red gate" in Buryat reflectin the communist ideology o the Soviet Union tae which it belanged.
