BLAGUCHIN from Babruysk #belarus #names


Barbara Freedman
 

My husband’s grandfather was known as Bennie METTER in Toronto. Family legend is that METTER is a cousin’s name he adopted. His surname was actually BLAGUSHIN or BLAGUCHIN in Babruysk where he was born in 1890. 

Does anyone know the name BLAGUCHIN? It is unusual and I wonder about its origin.
