    Real Russian last name for "Stone"

    The place that recruited me has a woman named "Anya Stone" that I know is a first-generation Russian, and I also know she modified her last name for ease of use in the USA. Does anyone know what it might be short for?
    Thanks,
    -Fantom

    Read any novel by Russia's most famous current detective novelist (Александра Маринина www.marinina.ru ) and you will quickly realize that the the heroine has the surname you seek, Анастасья Каменская!!! Stacy Stone!
