Re: Given name Ksyel

My father, born in the United States to Lithuanian immigrants, was
Kasile. If I could figure out for whom he was named, that would be a
HUGE help!

He liked the name Kasile but changed his first name to John when he was
about 40 -- Kasile apparently posed a professional liability, as no one
could pronounce or spell it.
