Leningrad and Stalingrad?

Why did Russia name their cities after two jew men?


Lenin was not a Jew. "Ilya (father of Lenin) was a devout member of the Russian Orthodox Church and baptised his children into it," and "It is likely that Lenin was unaware of his mother's half-Jewish ancestry, which was only discovered by his sister Anna after his death." are cut/paste from Wiki. Stalin, a Georgian, "Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili" was his Georgian birth name. "His mother set him on a path to become a priest, and he studied Russian Orthodox Christianity until he was nearly twenty." from Jewish Virtual Library.


They didn't name them after Jews, they named them after tyrants!


neither Lenin nor Stalin were Jews.


They didn't. They changed the names, to honour leaders of the revolution
