Thread: Question about non-Russian surnames

    Question about non-Russian surnames

    I just made a post about somebody called Вассерман (Wassermann).
    What happens if a woman has this name? Does it remain in the existing form or does it change at all, if so how?

    It remains in the existing form and becomes indeclinable.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
