    OTMA est l'assemblage des initiales des prénoms des quatre filles du tsar Nicolas II et de la tsarine Alexandra Feodorovna : les grandes-duchesses Olga (1895-1918), Tatiana (1897-1918), Maria (1899-1918) et Anastasia (1901-1918).

    Durant leur captivité, après la révolution russe et l'abdication du tsar, les quatre grandes-duchesses signaient leurs lettres pour leurs proches avec cet acronyme, car étant étroitement surveillées, elles ne pouvaient envoyer que très rarement des lettres qu'elles écrivaient collectivement. Mais cet acronyme servait avant la Révolution russe. Il leur arrivait d'offrir parfois leurs cadeaux et d'envoyer les lettres écrites par l'une d'elles au nom de toutes. Ce quatuor harmonieux est séparé en deux groupes : la Grande Paire (Olga et Tatiana) et la Petite Paire (Maria et Anastasia).
