[Surname] Russian Male Surname
I have a female character in a story who is of Russian descent and ethnicity. Her surname is Nikonechnaia. I was wondering what the male equivalent of her that would be.Nikonechnii, Nikonechnoi, and Nikonechnyi are all the same root/base with masculine endings, but I'm not sure which, if any, of them are correct. To me, Nikonechnii looks the most accurate and the most, well, Russian.---------------------------------------------------------------------Doomsday is near; die all, die merrily.

If die, brave death, when princes die with us!
