How common a Russian name is Luzhin? I just realized that Crime and Punishment features a Luzhin, and knowing Nabokov's names are carefully chosen, I wonder what Nabokov wants to suggest in naming the protagonist in Luzhin's Defense. Or am I reading meaning into a completely arbitrary choice on Nabokov's part?
