Notes to answerer
Asker: Ага, кажется, поняла принцип - ъ обозначает звук дж, как в самом слове Азярбайъан. Нашла его - это Гамаршах Джаллад оглы Джавадов, историк, автор той самой книги про малые народы. Только вот думаю - может, лучше оставить азербайджанскую транскрипцию? Имени историка я на иностранных языках не нашла, а если взять, например, футболиста Вагифа Джавадова, то ссылок на азербайджанское написание гораздо больше, чем на английскую транскрипцию.

agree  Silifke: Cevadov. Cevad is the right spelling :) Hi from Ankara.

neutral  Pierrick Jaouen, CFA: You could be right, as the original Azeri letters might have been corrupted when the document is opened with MS Word as is the case with the 2 other examples. Silifke uses the Turkish transliteration where English "J" is written "C".

G.?. Avadov

Ъ is the transliteration of the Arabic letter ayin (ع).
It is not possible to know whether the second initial Ъ is "A" or "E" or "I" or "O" or "U".

Javadov would be "Жавадов"
