Names change over time and that (the passage of time and the TOI) was what I think Lois was trying to show. Consider Serge to Serg and Padmaker to Parma for how other names changed.
Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

Hear, hear. I notice that too, in many posts. But that's okay -- I have accepted that many people are just not spelling-oriented. As when I email someone, with my name in the email address and the signature, spelled with a K, and their reply begins, "Cathy".
Katherine (with a terminal e, and an initial K)
