    Russian dictionary of surnames

    Can anyone recommend an online dictionary of Russian surnames with the correct stress indicated?

    I would like to improve my knowledge of surname stress which isn't brilliant. However, it's probably better than the BBC which drives me mad with its constant mispronunciation and mis-stressing of Russian surnames. Goodness knows what our Russian friends in the UK make of it.

    The worst time of year is when Wimbledon is on and our house resounds to SharapOvas flopping out of the radio and TV - to be hit back with resounding SharApovas from me and my pedantic spouse. Perhaps we should get a life.

    Thanks for listening.

    This might do. Rules, etc. Also, there are several good references in Bibliography.
    Good luck.
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
