I read on a 10.5 " tablet so it is convenient to just have this open in the web browser to tap back and forwards to while reading.
Nice list, I bookmarked it on my iPhone. Yesterday I ran across this character.

Kiprian Tiverzin (also known as Kiprian Savelyevich, Savelyevich, Kuprinka, and Tiverzin) is the employee at the Moscow railway station who protects Yusup from Khudoleev.
In a couple of pages they call him Kiprian Tierzin, then a bit later Savelyevich, then his mom called him Kuprinka. War and Peace did the same thing sometimes. You have to read up on the Russians use of diminutives in naming.
