For the first time a book examines the nature of each vowel and each consonant in German and describes the kinds of changes that can occur in the spellings of German personal names and place names. Variations of name spellings in Germany and between Germany and North America are featured. The book is designed for both novice and expert researchers; while the former can discover why specific changes in name spellings occur, the latter will find explanations for what s/he may have already known about those changes. Phonetic rules are discussed, but the reader is invited to skip those and use a trouble-shooting guide of over 200 names to proceed directly to examples of name variations. An every-name index is included. The thesis of this book is that name spelling variations are (1) natural, (2) logical, and thus to an extant (3) predictable.
