Call Name
* Possibly? [ (Gramps-users) Callname marking] From: Joachim Breitner <2005-11-12 19:11:06
The ''Call name'' feature is inspired by the German word ''Rufname'' -- a compound of the words "anruf name" which literally translates to "Call name." And there is a similar Swedish structured concept known as ''tilltalsnamn'' -- a compound form of "tilltals namn" translating to "heard name." However, Gramps originated as an English product where there is no directly comparable analogue to this "Call Name." That makes the "Call Name" both a source of confusion to that community and harder to describe in English.
