German given names are usually written in Polish or Russian in the Lutheran
of Russian Poland.  A given name tends to show up in a standard form, but
it is not unusual to see phonetic approximations such as Wilchelm.  The
spelling -ch- is pronounced as, and so best approximates the German
h in Wilhelm.

Euprosine is a common German name in Russian Poland, particularly in areas
on the north side of the Wisla river. No particular significance to the use
of the
name by your family.
