Hungary SIG #Hungary Lajos--> Ludwig #hungary

ezwiebac <ezwiebac@...>

My father was born in Zala County in 1891. I have his birth certificate;
all in Hungarian. His given name was Lajos.
When he moved to Vienna at age 16, he changed his name to Ludwig.
BTW, when he came to the U.S. in 1911, he changed it again, to Louis.

My ggm had a brother Lajos, whom my father was named for.
LDS shows a birth registry for Ludwig. I don't believe
that Lajos is a nickname, so all I can assume is that he
changed his name, perhaps preferring something Hungarian
to something Germanic. Any thoughts on this phenomenon.
He was born in Kunszentmiklos in the 1870's.
