    History

    Foundation and name

    Voronezh originates as a settlement of the Kievan Rus in about the 12th century, first mentioned in the Hypatian Codex (dated 1177). The Voronezh River is likely named for the settlement, then in the Principality of Chernigov.The toponym is usually derived from a Slavic personal name Voroneg, apparently a derivation from voron "raven", The comparative analysis of the name "Voronezh" was carried out by the Khovansky Foundation in 2009.

    Folk etymology displays the name of the city from a raven and a hedgehog (Воронеж = Ворон(Raven) + Еж(hedgehog)); allegedly the Slavs called it a river in honor of their tribes, named in turn in honor of the animals concerned. Science does not seriously consider this version.
