It has been mentioned in other messages on this topic that Fredrick, Ferdinand and Valentyne are separate names.  

I just would like to say that I have seen Friedrich and Ferdinand interchanged in some birth, death or marriage records I have looked at in Central Poland.  I don't feel the people themselves got this mixed up but rather the pastor or the recorder made the mistake when the entries were made.

  I've been researching my Bierwagen and Schmidtke ancestors.
  Fredrick (or Ferdinand or Valentyne) Bierwagen (born 1860) married Henrietta
  Schmidtke (1861-1948).  They are my great-grandparents.
  I recently found this website, but can't translate it.  I wonder if someone
  can help me out.
