Baba Yaga is a name of a "Russian witch". The word baba is a way to refer to a woman (not the nicest one, we don't recommend to use it), and Yaga is her name.
According to some theories, the predecessor of Baba Yaga was the Slavic goddess Yaginya. The second nickname of Yaga is “bone leg”, and her hut is surrounded by a fence of human bones and skulls.
