St. Petersburg on the Raymond family tree

Leningrad was a city in Russia.

In the 21st century, this city was known as St. Petersburg (Russian: Санкт-Петербург). In 2059, Wendy Ruiz Raymond was born in this city. (TNG-R: "The Neutral Zone", okudagram)

In 2268, Pavel Chekov claimed that Scotch whisky had been invented by a "little old lady" from Leningrad. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

Expressing his amazement over the planet Mudd, Chekov later remarked that "this place is even better than Leningrad." (TOS: "I, Mudd")

Leningrad was hit by the effects of the Whale Probe in 2286, losing all electrical power, and experiencing a cloud cover of 100% - blocking out the sun, and causing temperatures to plummet. The damage was reversed following the actions of James T. Kirk and the HMS Bounty. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

The city was renamed St. Petersburg in 1991, five years after The Voyage Home was filmed, causing a real life retcon. The province containing the city of St. Petersburg is still named Leningrad Oblast. This may suggest that it reverted back to its former name sometime between 2059 and 2268, or that any references refer to the province (albeit with a short form of the name).
Anton Yelchin, who played Pavel Chekov in the new films, was in fact born in the city.
Leningrad (City of Lenin) was named after Vladimir Lenin.
