Call name is a transliteration of the German
work '' rufname''. It is therefore sometimes a source of confusion. It is not a nickname, or necessarily the ''name'' someone is ''called''.

<!-- It is however a part or a variation of the Given name which is the officially used part of that Given name. -->
