    Longer version of Stepan, if I interpreted it correctly.

    Sure Steve, but in case you are interested one of my Russian friend's name is Steve but the Russian version is Slava (short) or Stanislav (more formal one).

    Slava means fame in Russian.

    I noticed the interpretations were not always exact and were often dependent on regional differences.

    So my name "Steve, son of George (of noble blood)" might have several Russian versions quite different from each other.

    I trying to remember if Stepan meant farmer according to the site I looked at. Maybe I can find that again.
