I read something about these names being Molokan. I have never ever heard of such an ethnicity. Supposedly these names are derived from Dasii and Darii, and I found that Dasii means 'martyr'. What does the 'kov' mean? I assume, from my limited Russian knowledge, that it means something like child, son, daughter, etc.

Anyone more have anything beyond this? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks again,


PS, sorry for 2 posts so close together.
