In my case it should be apparent that a lot of language study is in order. Shortly after writing the brave words of
the above, I discovered that Nuss, according to Bahlow of the _Deutsches Namenlexikon_, may also derive as a hypocoristic form of Denis (formed by apheresis). (See #ll2, "Re: Etymology:
Nuss, Nus, Nups, Nussbaum"). NIES and
NIESS are also variants of the NUSS which derives from DENIS. It seems possible then that the NEUS cited in the previous message might be a variant
(see NIES and NIESS) of "Nuss means Denis".
