There they had several more children.  

******Note About German Naming Conventions 

Early German baptismal names are in Latin and consist of at two first names. The first name is that of a favorite Saint believed to convey good luck to the child. The first name was normally not used by that person, except in official or formal church documents. The second name, or call or common name, is the name everyone called that person and the name that person was know by. In all families it is common to find that all the male children have the same first name for the families favorite male saint and the female children have the same first name for the families favorite female saint. They will all have different second names by which they are commonly known.
