Of possible general interest to you - as I am a descendant of Prussians on my mother's side - is that some Prussian families used Johann, Johannes, Johanne, Johanna for their children and then gave a proper name which was used more than the former. Some families did not use these names. I did read at one stage that only certain families could use these names as the father had been in the Kaiser's Army but I haven't been able to find out any more re this.

In my ORTH/SIEGNER family tree all four daughters of my ancestors were called Anna but were known by their middle names: Elizabeth, Martha, Katharina and Dorothea.

In my tree, connecting names are KRAUSS, KNAUFF, PAULUS and BERGER from Viermunden and Schmalkalder - Germany / Hessen, Prussia who emigrated to Australia and settled in New South Wales with a heavy concentration in the Lambs Valley area.
