The article deals with the variants of foreign place names which appear in Vesti- Kuranty – a digest of current news translated in Moscow from European sources during the 17th-century. It takes a closer look at the morphological adaptation of these borrowings at a period when the Russian nominal declension undergoes a series of changes, and the foreign toponyms reflect this evolution. Moreover, the lack of a common standard prescribing the rules of adopting foreign words at the time leads to an often chaotic practice of introducing a number of variants for the same geographic name. The two main issues addressed are the gender ambiguity of the borrowed place names and the variations of their case endings.
