Yes it's like Conrad. It looks like the person that recorded his baptism recorded it as "Coenraedt".

The current versions listed on the Dutch diminutives Wikipedia page are:

  • Koenraad : Co, Coen, Coentje, Coert, Connie, Conny, Conrad, Cord, Cort, Curd, Curt, Koen, Koendert, Koentje, Koerd, Koert, Konrad, Konnie, Konny, Kord, Kort, Kurt

Indeed it is.
Thank you Carrie and for the work on the profile.

I asked, because the Error Report says it is the only spelling of this name in WikiTree.
Thank you Carrie, couldn't have stated this better myself. Bravo!
It is our imperative - our duty to teach the Error's database ....
