Welcome to This is the Caucasus, an extensive and comprehensive online resource dedicated to personal names from the Caucasus!

The Caucasus is a mountainous region situated in Eurasia, which includes the present-day nations of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Russia, and Georgia as well as several disputed regions (namely Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh, and South Ossetia) and federal republics of the Russian Federation (Chechnya, Ingushetia, Dagestan, etc). It is a diverse region with a multitude of religions, ethnic groups, and histories, of which is this site’s main objective to explore. As information on this obscure yet beautiful region is fairly uncommon, this site aims to provide high-quality and authentic information on names used in the Caucasus.
