The Circassian are an ethnic group from Circassia, a region of the North Caucasus at the northeast shore of the Black Sea. It gives you 15 random circassian names and surnames. However, because of the Russian-Circassian war of 1864, a number of Circassians were displaced, resulting in numerous Circassians being seen in Turkey and various regions of Russia as well as in many other countries in Europe and the Middle East. The Circassians are primarily Sunni Moslems, but many are also Christians or Habze, which is Circassian ethnicity. The rather turbulent history and Russian conquest of the Circassians has given rise to many names. Surnames were mostly based on the clan, but later Russian patronymic nicknames were adopted, and so many nicknames ended in 'ovy,' 'ov,' 'ova' and the same Russian or Circassian equivalents. First names range from Russian to more traditional Circassian, but the difference is usually very easy to tell if you know Russian names, at least.
