LNAB is Valdes, should be Baldes, if I change can/should I change ID name?

+3 votes

This profile was created with no sources.  I have 3 sources and 2 of them, including the baptism record, show her last name as Baldes.  I know Bs and Vs are somewhat interchangeable in hispanic names but I still think the last name should be changed.  If I do, the Wiki-Tree ID won't match.  Is there a way to change it or do I even need to?

Changing the LNAB will by definition change the "ID" as wikitree uses the LNAB as an ID.

We could say Baldes is the spoken form of Valdes. 

So Valdes and Baldes are practicaly the same, 

I would rather pay atention to married names as in the hispanic culture women usually do not change their names by marriage,

The pronunciation in Western Hemisphere for the letter V is B. In Spain it is still pronounced V.

As for the woman's name after marriage. The woman keeps her name and add "de or y" and her husbands name. It is not used as much as it was in colonial period.
