The "e" in BLAETTNER represents the umlaut (2 little dots) that are over the "a" in German to make it sound sort of like "eh". So if the umlaut can't be reproduced, you can get the same sound by spelling it "ae".
I have many BLAETTNER (or spell it w. umlaut-"a") ancestors, Jews from Schwanfeld, Bavaria (Germany). Many died in the Holocaust, as you can see in YadVashem.org.
