I think it's a fairly common Germanic surname. In this case it refers to the Carl Lorenz AG electronics company, which made a lot of the radio gear used by Germany in WWII. (No relation to the Austrian inventor of the Lorenz rifle, as far as I am aware, nor of the American mathematician who invented the Lorenz equations.)

No, no it was not; but then, very little about Colonel Yegorova's duties of late can honestly be described as "fun".

Well, that's the beauty of valenki: they're either very forgiving of sizing discrepancies, or just don't really fit anyone very well, depending on how generous you want to be about it. :)
