For much of the eighteenth century the clerk or clerks writing the Parish Registers of Kilham, Yorkshire were fond of little jokes about people's names.

One such was to write Elvidge as Elvish. There seems to be little if any evidence that this changed the way that other people wrote the name, so there is no reason to accept it as Last Name at Birth for example, though it may be useful to include it as Other Name (if only to reduce unnecessary duplication of profiles).
