Actually, the Manx often gave their daughters the first name of 'Christian' which makes genealogical research very difficult. My greatgrandmother's maiden name was "Christian Eleanor Cannell", and she was known as 'Ella'. But the records such as IGI only show 'Christian Cannell'.
Add to it that 'Christian' is a very common and prominent family name on the Isle of Man and you have confusion.
As for William Juan Corlett, his middle name would now be pronounced something like "Joo'en', but in those days was "Joo'(d)en", with a very soft 'd'.
Aren't Gaelic languages wonderful?
