    Big what are you tring to say??? all that names, Mamulashvili, Vasili, Kakhabrishvili, Arsen, Abramishvili, Zaur are real georgian names, there are many people in Georgia with these names. Davidov is armenian name, this guy is armenian from Georgia.

    Obviously you are ignorant in things outside the field of your interests ("eating").
    The name is a Greek one - Gennadios.

    I just think many non-Ceorgians born in Georgia changed their names to sound more Georgian. Not hard to do. Add shvili or idze to your name and that's it.

    For example Gatsalov-Gatishvili. Dudaev-Dudashvili, Murtazaliev-Murtalidze and so on.

    Gennadi might have origin in Greece but I bet there are many more Gennadiis in Russia than in Greece or Georgia.

    Vladimir and Vasili are also prominent Russian names. No real Georgian would name his children with those names.

He is actually Georgian and probably was Emzari Betinidze.

    Another one is Ketoev's brother who represented Georgia last year at Europeans and his name was changed to Ketushili.
    There was also a Bulgarian in the 80s Angel Sirakov who then competed for Turkey and changed his name to Behcet Selimoglu. He may have been an ethnic Turk and that was his original name and the Bulgarian Federation changed his name to sound more Bulgarian. akzent?

    I know the famous weightlifter Naim Suleymanoglu, an ethnic Turk, was born Naim Suleimanov in Bulgaria and changed his name to Suleymanoglu after getting Turkish citizenship.
