Translating Italian to Latin

Postby cinderella » 04 Jan 2005, 01:55

I have a family name of "Janello," which I found on some parish registries from the 1700's in Roccapalumba. This same family appears on some birth documents (on microfilm) as "Ianello." Does the "I" translate to "J" in Latin?

Absolutely it does, the J in Latin is the equivalent to the I in Italian. It can be a challange to figure out the corresponding Italian name to a latin one. For example in the church records I am working with there is this latin first name Hieronisma/Hieronima. Now one would think the somewhat common Geronima would be the Italian equivalent. But this isnt always the case, some of the women /men listed in the church records as Hieronima/o are called Girolama/o in the Italian civil records, while others are in fact Geronima. Bit confusing when you try to extract.

Thank you for your response. This helps me out tremendsouly. Are there any other letters, such as your "G" and "H" that I should be aware of when translating latin to Italian? Is there a publication that lists some of these translation challenges?
Thank you.

:D Thank you, Peter. Are there any other letters such as "G" and "H" that I should be aware of when translating Latin to Italian? I'm in the process of translating several parish registers from Roccapalumba that are in Latin. Are there publications available that might help?

Thank you!
