For many years, people in the Chechen region were often referred to as Chechens, but this word was later dropped due to the fact that it was not in line with the modern political situation in the region. The word "Chechen" itself is an ethnic Russian ethniconym taken from a lowland Chechen village; the term "Checheny" is derived from this. (Both terms are accented on the final syllable in Chechen.) Today, Chechens are sometimes referred to as Nokhi (plural Nokhi). However, despite the difference in pronunciation and the meaning of the words, both are essentially the same name for the region in which they live.
The most popular Chechen surname is Sokharev. This family name was chosen by the Chechens as their official family name; it was also a common name in the region. However, many people have changed their names when moving to Chechnya, so the meaning of this name has changed significantly. The most common name for the women is Sokhareva or Sokhrana. This name is derived from "Sokha", which means a small river in Chechen. The children are called Sokhrana, as are the women, and the men are called Sokharev. These last two names are mostly common among married Chechens, although single Chechens have used these names as well.
Chechens have been known to change their names even more frequently than others. Many Chechens have changed their names after marrying foreigners (or when they become married themselves), so their name remains the same even though their spouse's name has changed. People who live in Chechnya may also switch their surnames when they move out of the region to find work in another part of Russia.
