Belarusian/Russian names

I already tried google, browsing through the tags of this community, and checking some sites that list Belarusian/Russian names, but with no real luck so far.

I'm working on this fic that takes place in modern Belarus, with characters born and grown up there. What I need to know is if the equivalent of the following names exists in Belarusian/Russian or not:

- Robert (Bob)
- Brian
- Frank

I found 'Burian' once, which should be the equivalent of Brian, but I'm not 100% sure about it. If anyone confirms/denies it, I'll really be grateful. Plus, if there is no real translation of them, could you perhaps point me towards names that are at least phonetically similar?

Thank you everyone. :)
