Correct spelling please

Postby Emmy » 29 Sep 2007, 19:37

Do you know the correct spelling for this name or could it be written both ways?
Guiseppe or Giuseppe
and the female version- Guiseppa or Giuseppa

Sometimes the 'dot' above the i seems to be above the first stroke after the G and other times its after the 3rd stroke very confusing would be grateful for your opinions.

This is a Christian name I havent seen before anyone know the English version?
Cresceuzo/Creseuzo

Hi Emmy!
Giu should be correct
Next name, you're probably looking at an 'n' instead of a 'u'
Crescenzo/Crescenzio
from:
CRESCENTIUS
Gender: Masculine
