What is his first name?

Post by Miss Blue » 24 Aug 2016, 21:14

Here's a marriage record for Oto (?) Lanno and Rosa Casale, as well as three birth records for their children.

Marriage (#21): https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043547

Birth (#57 Francesco Saverio Lanno): https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043547

Birth (#203 Maria Concetta Lanno): https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043547

Birth (#107 Francesco Antonio Lanno): https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043547

Is Oto or Ato a nickname for Antonio? The name in the birth record of Francesco Antonio looks like Antonio. In the US, I've seen his name as Otto and Tony. He also had a grandson named Otto.

Thanks for your help!
