This Jewish surname of NACKE is from the Hebrew male given name NACHMAN, which is a variant of the biblical male given name NACHUM (Consoled). The name was borne by a minor prophet, the author of the Book of the Bible that bears his name. The Russian form of the name NAUM and NAUMOV, is widespread even among non-Jews. The name has numerous variant spellings which include NACMAN, NACHMANI, NACHMANY, NACHMANSON, NACHMANOVITZ, NAKHUMOVICH, NAUMOV and NAUMSHIN, to name but a few. The family of NAUMOV is descended from one Pavlin who departed Germany to serve the Great Prince Simion Ivanovich Gordy. His grandson was named NAUM and many of his descendants served the Throne as Stolniks, in the offices of Okolnichii and Striapchii, and in other distinguished posts, and they were granted fiefdoms. Ivanonvich NAUMOV entered the service in 1732. In 1783 he was Chief Secretary in the Holy Governing Synod; in 1779 State Councillor; in 1784 he was made Cavalier of the Order of St. Vladimir; in 1796 he was chief Procurator of the Holy Synod; and on December 23rd of the same year he and his descendants received the rank of nobility. Gevrila NAUMOV of the Company of Life Guards by the command of Her Highness Empress Elizaveta Petrovna dated December 31st, 1741, was granted the rank of nobility along with all of his legal descendants. Russian surnames are almost exclusively patronymic (occasionally metronymic) in form, usually ending in 'ov' or 'ev'. Habitation and topographic names are rare, and many common Russian surnames are polygenetic, and their literal meaning is clear, even though the reason for their adoption may not be. Heraldry appeared later in Russia than in most other Western European countries. It is generally agreed that it was copied from the west sometime in the late 17th century, and quickly achieved state significance. In 1722 Emperor Peter I (The Great) established an official Heraldry Office headed by a Master of Heraldry under the jurisdiction of the Senate, and granted 355 armorial bearings in the 18th century.
