Yury, Yuri, Youri, Yurii, Yuriy, Yurij, Iurii or Iouri is the Slavic (Ukrainian: Юрій, or Russian: Юрий, or Bulgarian: Юрий, or Belarusian: Юрый) form of the masculine given name George; it is derived directly from the Greek form Georgios and related to Polish Jerzy and Czech Jiří.
The Slavic form of the name originates with Yuriy Dolgorukiy, Grand Prince of Kiev and founder of Moscow (c. 1099–1157), in early accounts recorded as Gyurgi, Dyurgi. Yaroslav the Wise, great-grandfather of Yuriy Dolgorukiy, was the first Ruthenian ruler whose patron saint was Saint George. The saint is now depicted on the coat of arms of Moscow.
