Subject: Dane as short form of Daniel
Author: Mackandal   (guest,

Nikola Tesla, an ethnic Serb, had a brother who died at age 12 whose name was Daniel, but he was called Dane. The only information on "Dane" on BtN is about the English surname-turned-first name. How would Dane Tesla`s name have been pronounced? Is there any information on the use of this diminutive of Daniel, particularly in the Balkans?
