Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda

The spelling you see here is because he’s named as such in the New Grove. But he was born in Prague in 1801, making him Czech… and thus capable of being referred to (in brackets in Grove, so optionally) as Jan Křtitel Václav Kalivoda, which is what Wikipedia calls him -without the two middle names. Last.fm has at least 8 variations of his name: some using ‘Wenzel’, others ‘Wenseslaus’ and so on ad infinitum. I’m a fan of diacritics, but not if there are reasonable alternatives: I’m stick with Grove’s first choice of Germanised spelling!
