    I speculate - could it be the scribe? ie a stand in priest, school teacher or bad hair day. Are all the page entries in the same hand writing, ink color?

      Could the first name have been added after the family name - ie the scribe could not immediately recall the baby's name?
      Otherwise sorry, I am drained of ideas.

      >> Thanks Alan. But it is not clear to me why that ending would have appeared on the name of the father on a baptism record for his child. The "vje" ending is not used on any of the other names on that page of the church baptism records or for that matter anywhere else that I have seen. I've always been puzzled by it.

It is almost certain the same family because the wife's name is the same on all the records. Could this be some diminutive ending? Is there any significance to a "vje" ending?
