The name Bogachevsky implies "of the family of God," where "Bog" is Russian for God, "chev" indicates a family line and "sky" simply means "of."
The practice of assigning beautiful, artificially invented surnames to pupils of theological schools was quite common in Russia in the 18th-19th centuries, since it was believed that the name of a clergyman should support his authority.
The other name used for Bogachevsky, Father Evlissi, means 'married' in Turkish.
Evlissi is a Turkish word meaning 'married" — perhaps implying that Bogachevsky was "married" to the church.
