Russian Language/ Airport
We are to visit Russia next month (flying from Ankara) and will presumably fly in via Шереметьево.
Please could you tell me about the name? Шереметьево seems to be a genitive – what is the nominative? What does it signify? Is it ever used?
Please indicate the correct stress/accent.
Best wishes, and many thanks,
Sorry for my tardy response.
Шереметьево got its name from the town nearby - Шереметьевскиий. In the name Шереметьево, the third "e" is stressed. Originally the name comes from the name of the Russian duke family. You can read about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheremetev
Hope this helps. Have a great time on your trip :)!
