I thought that this would be interesting.

What language are most of the titles of your icons written in?  Mine are mostly Russian/Slavonic, with a few English icons.  I'm a real sucker for Slavic icons.

How about you?

I don't have many icons, but to answer the questino: mostly English, with one Slavic icon someone gave me and a Greek one that doesn’t have any writing on it beyond the usual IC XC. Also Spanish if you want to count the Guadalupe candle I have on a shelf near it, though it’s not for me an item of devotion. I bought it during a hurricane but I felt weird about throwing it away when the storm was over.

When I first saw the question, I read it as “What language do you use in your icon corner?” The answer is the same (mostly English, some babble), when I remember to pray.

Majority is Greek, with a couple that are bilingual Greek/English. Then English. Then Slavonic.

Mostly Slavonic; in fact mainly icons from Sofrino (hence why they're in Slavonic) - which I've received in various ways from different people.

I have a few from Sofrino too that my Godfather gave me when I was baptized.  Grin

Mine are mostly Slavic with a few in English and Greek. I have an Italian one of Fr. Seraphim Rose and also have an icon of St. Herman of Alaska that is in both Slavic and English so I guess I can put a checkmark for both.  Cheesy

Let's see:  Christ and Virgin are both Greek (Panselinos), St. John the Baptist is Serbian, St. John Damascene (my patron saint) is (modern) Greek.  Guardian angel is Russian.  St.  Christopher is Greek.  Nativity is Coptic.  Theophany and Crucifixion are Greek (Esphigmenou series).  Resurrection is Greek. Trinity is Rublev.
