The name "Chebyshev" is well known in numerical computation in
mathematics, science, and engineering.  This Web site lists 207
variants in its transliteration from the Cyrillic alphabet to the
Roman one:


The MathSciNet and zbMATH databases each record more than 4300
publications with "Chebyshev" in their titles.  Alas, no online
publication database that I know of permits regular expressions in
searches, so finding publications that use the 200+ variants would be
rather difficult.
