Russian has no special letter for the Latin letter H, in different words it is rendered differently, you have to consult a dictionary every time a proper name has H. The main ways it can be written are:

  • Г: Гималаи "the Himalayas", Генри "Henry";
  • Х: хинди, хиндустани "Hindi, Hindustani (languages)", Хайдарабад "Hyderabad";
  • no letter at all: Индостан "Hindustan (subcontinent)".
