Topic: German name with 'von'
Hi, i insert a person-duplicate.
My new entry is 'Alt, Rudolf von' but he, as i see now, exist as 'von Alt, Rudolf'.
I think, my new name is the better one. Because in german the 'von' is only a minor part of the name (although it is part of the last name) and doesn't change the lexicographical order.
So you find in a dictionary for example
- 'Menzel, Adolph von' under M and not as here under V because of 'von Menzel, Adolph'
- 'Defregger, Franz von' under D and not as here under V because of 'von Defregger, Franz'
- and so on.
Have a nice weekend
