    transliteration of a Russian name

    I'm driving myself mad trying to transliterate (into Russian) the Russian name Markov. Could somebody give me the characters; I'd greatly appreciate it. I think if I try any more, I'm going to explode.

    Thank you,

    It is written as: Марков. Russian letters are called cryllic, by the way. What have your attempts been?

    Thanks. I was at a Russian site for names where all the names were in cyrillic and was trying to find Markov; I also was using the alphabet on this site as a refrence. I got to the point where I transliterated all but 'v' but I kept forgetting about the 'k.' Now that I think about it (even though I'm tired) it makes sense, because I was learning the Russian language years ago (about 4-5 years) and I learned some of the alphabet. Thanks again so much even though I probably should bash my head into a wall now.

    Markov is probably one of the easiest names to transliterate. (even though it took me awhile too). Wait until you come across a longer name.

    I'm curious, but any reason why you wanted to transliterate the name of Markov? Just interested, it happens to be my last name.
