Modern Russian Surnames

 In Russian, most surnames change depending on the gender of the person. The last names in the list below are all in the male form. The feminine form is the same plus an "a" at the end for most surnames ending in "v" and "n". Surnames ending in "y" change to the feminine form by replacing the ending with "-aya". A large number of Russian surnames also end in "evich," "ovich," or just "ich". Kuzmich and Verenich are common Russian surnames. Surnames ending in "evich" are common. For example, there is Stasevich, Fyodorovych, Ogiyevich, Alkhimovich, and Denisovich. It is believed that the "ich" ending last names originated from northern Belarus and southwestern Russia. Also, the "coch" ending last names are found everywhere in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, but most typically in Belarus and Russia. Please note these are not necessarily the names of the flax and hemp inspectors on the database.
