SCOTTISH PETNAMES etc
Posted by: Eileen Carson Date: January 15, 2002 at 08:59:12

Please note the following when researching Scottish or Scottish descendants:

Jane = Jean or vice versa
Jessie = Janet
Agnes = Ann/Annie/Annus/Agnus
Christian = Chrissy/Christy/Christine/Christina and even Kristy/Kirsty
Isabell/Isobel = Isabel/Isabella/Isobel all at times are interchangeable.
Also
Alexander = Alec/Alex/Sandy

I have certificated proof of all the above.
Eileen
