It's Russian. Though, surely, not of Russian/Slavic origin.

He was born on May 4 (Julian) in a village just few miles avay of a
monastery famous for and named after Russian saint of the same name.
Incidentally Russian Orthodox Church celebrate the memory of this
saint on May 1 (Julian). Hence the name choice is not that surprising
given the time and the place of birth.
