Behind the scenes

Etymology

The name "Lev" means "lion" in Russian, functioning as a vernacular form of Leo. This was the real Russian name of both author Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) and revolutionary Leon Trotsky (1879-1940). In Hebrew the name means "heart".

Lev Yashin (1929 - 1990) is a Russian goalkeeper widely believed to have been the best goalkeeper in the history of football. The Lev Yashin Award is awarded to the best goalkeeper in each World Cup.

A zograf is a person who paints churches (from Greek "zografos"). Several Bulgarians in this walk of life were given this nickname-turned-surname in recognition to their work.
