Originally spelled Ozimov, Asimov is the anglicized surname of science fiction writer Isaac Asimov. His father was not familiar with Latin characters when they immigrated to the United States, when Isaac was 3, so the name became Asimov, not Azimov.Ozimov is the Russian form of "winter" when in a name.
