Yes.

There is the curious observation that many East Slavic names exist
in Russian, Belarusian, and Ukrainian variants and, when a person
is referred to, the name is adapted to the language the speaker/writer
uses. For examples, pick a famous person from one of those countries
and compare the Wikipedia entries in the respective language editions:

ru: Владимир Владимирович Путин (Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin)
be: Уладзімір Уладзіміравіч Пуцін (Uladzimir Uladzimiravich Putsin)
uk: Володимир Володимирович Путін (Volodymyr Volodymyrovytch Putin)

due to native sound changes of an underlying root name?
