My grandfather was Henry A Gusman. The A stands for Andrew which was really his first name. We didn't know this until shortly before he died.

I assume his nationality is Prussian/German?

If so, then he could have been baptized (if the parents belonged to a religion that baptized infants) with at least one name of each of his witness/sponsors, as was the custom.

Some were kept... some were dropped.

It would then be up to the individual to choose his user name when reaching maturity/manhood.

Just because one name appears before the other does not mean a first, second or middle name.
