Re: Doppler's First Name?



Hi Paul,

according to http://www.christian-doppler.org/html/lebenslauf.html
his full name is Christian Andreas Doppler.

Obviously he was called Christian.

His fathers name was Johann Doppler, he was a stonemason.

So his full name might be Johann Christian Andreas Doppler
  ;)
