To all of you who have knowledge of surnames,
I am trying to figure out the relationship between surnames that
begin with an O, and what appears to be their counterpart names
without the leading O.
I am aware that a leading O in the British Empire means "of the
family of" (for instance, O'Sullivan versus Sullivan). In German
surnames, is the same true?
If the above is true, then are the following sample of such names
related to each other?
Oeher and Eher
Oehler and Ehler
Oehlike and Ehlike
Oehlke and Ehlke
