    This surname derives from an obscure dialect word, which means "a squabbler", a person who likes starting fights or arguments.
    Many Russian surnames have obvious meanings (i.e. they are formed from common words or names), Kavelin is NOT one of them. I had to google for its meaning, because the formative word has been out of use for centuries. And the surname itself is relatively rare.

    That's probably more than you wanted to know.
