Re: Is the 2nd name on the headstone a given name or a family name? #poland #lithuania #names

Hi,

I am also sure that it is a second name because:
1. I have a relative in my family from Romania that was called Cherna as a given name (she had just one name).

2. From the  headstone  format you can see that the given name and the surename are written separately, as in most stones graves.

Best Regards,
