      Ludovius (usually seen as Ludovicus) = Louis

      Jsidorus/Isidorus = Isidore (today rarely seen except in Jewish names)

      Vindelinius = Wendel (as in Oliver Wendell Holmes)

      Keep in mind also that immigrants could (and often did) change their name to

      anything they pleased. For example, most men named Ludovicus would become

      Louis in America, but there was no law that dictated this.

      Greetings to all. This morning I went through a microfilm at our local and

      was able to identify several potential relatives from my mother's father's

      side. The family name is Mokos and we believe that they came from Jalso, a

      small village near Piestany and Drahovce. I came across three male surnames

      that I have no idea how they would potentially translate into English. There

      three surnames are:

      Ludovius

      Jsidorus

      Vindelinius

      Can anyone tell me how these names would translate into English? Any

      assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      Elliott Nowacky
