    In addition to the theme

    The most famous Davydov -
    "
    The name of Denis Davydov (1784-1839) is inseparably linked with the Patriotic War of 1812, since he was the originator and one of the leaders of the partisan movement. Denis Davydov's military talents were highly esteemed by Kutuzov and Bagration, while he was also known as a gifted poet.

    OK, here is the list of Davidov (Давидов) family, but most likely origin of the people is not Russian.

    DAVYDOV is Russian variant.

    There's a famous n00b named Davidoff. He once came to MR and asked if his name was Russian.

    There's an aftershave brand called Davidoff. I've never used it because I still have four different kinds of aftershave at home.

    It's typical isn't it, you ask for aftershave at Christmas and four different people all decide to get you aftershave.

    Still, at least I'll smell nice for the next two years.

    Maybe the aftershave is desinged for smokers of Davidoff Cigarettes.

    Cool. You can do it asunder and have the first name 'David' and the last name "Off".

    I like it.

    Yes, I knew two brothers who named On and Off, and as they were hungarians, they we called first by their familiy name:

    David Off
    David On

    They went to school in Turkey with Pravit and Mexmet Hartman.

    By the way, Hartman has a 3 consonant cluster ...> it's Georgian.

    By the way, Russian can have 9 consonant clusters, for instance the famous контрвзбзднуть.

    контрвзбзднуть

    By the way, Russian can have 9 consonant clusters, for instance the famous контрвзбзднуть.
    And where the vowels go in between? What are the consonants that actually are not pronounced?

    ...I think I'll switch to japanese or swahili.

    By the way, what does контрвзбзднуть mean? I tried it in two translators and a dictionary online and got no answer.
