Re: LAKOBOVIC or JAKOBOVIC? #ukraine #russia #names

Often a capital I appears in transliterations, because the name was
pronounced Yacovitch. The Anglicized name was Jacovitch or Jacobitch, or
similar.

From there, the capital I was mistaken for a lower case l (see what I
mean?), and incorrectly rewritten as a capital L.
