EtymologyEdit

After the workers' revolt in the Lena Gold Mining Partnership, Ulyanov adopted the nom de guerre of "Lenin" in December 1901, taking the River Lena as a basis (Лена + possessive-adjective suffix -ин), thereby imitating the manner in which Georgi Plekhanov had adopted the pseudonym on "Volgin" after the River Volga.
