* Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili had a perfectly normal name in his homeland of UsefulNotes/GeorgiaEurope, but the Georgian language belongs to a very small and distinctive family unrelated to larger linguistic groups, so some difficulty was inevitable at a time when Georgia was part of the massive multi-ethnic empire of UsefulNotes/TsaristRussia. Thus, during his early years of revolutionary activity, he went by the code name of Koba (after a bandit in the novel ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Patricide The Patricide]]'' by Georgian author [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Kazbegi Alexander Kazbegi]]). Later, after UsefulNotes/RedOctober, he officially changed his name to the one by which most people know him: UsefulNotes/JosefStalin.
