I know the maiden name of someone is sometimes shown in parenthesis on a headstone.
But I have sometimes seen first names with a name following that in parenthesis, for example:
In cases like this, is it usual that the person's real name is listed without parenthesis and the used/commonly-known name in parenthesis, or is it usually the other way around?
In the above example, you would think that Betty would be the wife's given name at birth, and Hye would be the husband's given name at birth, but that would be inconsistently using the parenthesis on the same stone, which doesn't seem logical.
Or could there be other reasons for a given name to be shown in parenthesis?
