Thank you for the information you provided in your email. I appreciate the use of examples as they show more about the subject in a context.

The name Kristjan was used by my grandmother, on a U.S. immigration record of inbound passengers, of the person (her father) she and my father were visiting on a return trip to Latvia in 1935. It may have been Anglicized for that purpose.

Are you located in Latvia or the U.S.?
