    The name sound rather German then Russian to me. Perhaps it's the name of (German) jews.
    It means "lead man" (lead is here the noun for the metal not the verb руководить)

    Well, he may have been a jew living in russia, but that doesn't make his name russian.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    Yiddish is basically an old German dialect with some vocabulary from Slavonic languages (Russian and Polish).
    It is well known that a great number of Yiddish speaking jews lived under Russian rule before WWII. As Dogboy182 stated this fact does't turn a Yiddish or German name into a Russian one.
    The translation you have asked for I have already given in my post of July 27.

    Generally, last names of 'lietuvas bralukas' have the end as '-as', '-us', '-is'.

    I think you should try to look it up in dictionaries, try to find what does the word "Blei" mean, may be it's shirt form from some word. There r thousands and thousands of Jewish names of that type, btw, some German words are identical or almost identical to English words, for instance, here in Israel we have one man in Politics with surename "Liberman" and he is a Russian-Moldovain Jew in his origin, so his name comes from Yiddish/German of course but it's identical to English in this situation too. Liberman comes from the words Liberty+man.
