Spelling our name

In the 1700s,and maybe the 1800s, the spelling were leagend and encluded, for a few, Lafler/Lefler/Loeffler/Leflee/Leffler//all with an "in" on the end or an "el" on the end-and on. Also Johannes is used when there is a single name but Johannes is not the same as Johan or Johann or John which latter are "spiritual" or Saint names and would be used in conjunction with a second civil-given name--this during the 1700s as Leflers(universal net spelling)move out of Pa, then commonly lost.
