Contrary to popular opinion, names were not changed at Ellis Island. Names were written down at the port of departure where those writing the names were familiar with the spellings. That isn't to say that name spellings didn't often change after a person arrived in America for a variety of reasons...but it isn't because their name was changed at Ellis Island.
