Poor Zinamon

I am looking at the will of Zinamon Franklin Lee.1  Here are all the different ways his named is spelled on this one document.

Zimmamon Lee, Sr.
Zinamoun Lee, Sr.
Zinnamoren Lee

He just happens to have one of those names that lends itself to being spelled numerous ways but all on one document?  I have eight more AKAs for Zeno.  Zeno was his nickname, I wonder why.  His namesake son went by Frank most of the time.  Again, I wonder why.

 


     1Lamar County, Mississippi, Will Book 1: 69, Zimmamon Lee; Chancery Court, Purvis.
