Unsourced Etymology From Wikipedia[edit]

I found this on the page at w:Russian (disambiguation):

"Russian" originally meant "belonging to Rus'"; Rus' originally was a w:Slavonic word for the w:Varangians and other Scandinavians who set up a w:kingdom centered on w:Kiev; then for the kingdom that they set up; then the name was gradually transferred to the area's native Slavonic population.
