DH: Wanguk name (a Native American tribe in Connecticut, which Dh is part of)

DTD1: Swedish name

DTD2: Swedish/Danish Jewish name (like a Scandinavian-ified version of a Hebrew name, similar to an Anglicised version of a Hebrew name. My mother was Jewish)

DD3: Lule (but a name in Swedish, but chosen for the Lule pronounciation)

DS: Swedish (Lule too, but chosen for Swedish pronounciation, opposite of DD3)

They all have Wanguk middle name and a Hebrew middle name.
