      Before today and before looking at some church records in Gaboltov, I, too, had never seen two names for a child. There she was - Anna Marianna - born to Georgius Petrovits and Barbara Gribet(?) in 1815.

      There were some other examples, also.

This does cause some confusion when looking at the records. You do have to be observant about the birth dates and years, not just the name. This pattern through the males can go on for generations.
