Among the most frequently used nicknames Krupskaya is the author of “the Rebellious Petersburg. One hundred years of riots, rebellions and revolutions in urban folklore”, Naum sindalovsky, mentions “the Fish.” And Victor Piatnitski in the edition “Love story of the rulers of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union” says that often, Nadezhda Konstantinovna called a “Cold Fish”. Moreover, both writers attributed the fact to the unattractive appearance and modest, silent demeanour of the wife of Lenin.

However, the writer Valery Samburov, in his book “the Invasion of others. Why the power comes enemies,” argues that the origins of the “fish” nickname Krupskaya to be found in her pedigree. The fact that the father of Nadezhda Konstantinovna left early from life. About Krupskaya (as well as her husband) until the end of his days cared for her mother, Elizaveta Vasilyevna.

Legends and mysteries of the Forbidden city,” writes that “Lamprey” was a party name Krupskaya. Anastasia Monastery on the pages of “the Most famous novels of the twentieth century” says that this “name” was not accidental.
