Hi Satu (vrolijk kerstfeest!), ;-)

So, since it's only a shortening, should I just put Johannes Petrus in my genealogical computer-programme as his official name? Or should Joes Petrus be considered to be the official name?

To me, Joes sounds more like a nickname... if I had to 'give' that as the official name, it's like someone's real first name being Ed instead of Edward... if you see what I mean. :-S
