In Russia, most surnames change depending on the gender of the person.The last names in the list below are all in the male form. The feminine form is the same plus an "a" at the end for most surnames ending in "v" and "n".
You forgot the -in — in such last names as Gagarin, Ovechkin, Pushkin, Putin, etc. (I’m not counting Lenin and Stalin, as these are pseudonyms.) These are possessives.
Surnames derived from the occupation of an ancestor are also common, with Smith being the most common surname in the UK. This category of surnames is divided into two groups: standard occupations and titular occupations, such as Stewart, derived from an ancient clan title in Scotland.
