Google Translate makes it as 'handsome' when prompted to translate it from Russian to English, though from Ukrainian it properly translates it as 'noble'
Asked to translate it from Russian to Bulgarian and the Bulgarian then to English, it makes it as 'beautiful' - from Ukrainian to Bulgarian to English, it changes it from adjective to noun and makes it as 'nobleman'.
