    Herbert, you wrote:
    "If linguistics were  a
    science, one could at least expect that transliteration is an  injective
    and surjective mapping from one alphabet into another and thus  an
    invertible function. "Krusenstern" is a German name. It's a miracle  how
    the back-transliteration of its transliteration into cyrillic  became
    "Kruzenshtern". "
    
    Yeah, it's fairly silly, but I went with the  spelling chosen on the NYPL web
    site.
    
    There are some unusual  transliterations that happen when going from western
    languages to Russian. For  example, Hercules becomes Gerkules (hard "g" as in
    "get"), Hitler becomes  Gitler, hypnosis becomes gipnoz (again, hard "g").
