Well, actually, and to be correct, the name is Stöven, with the diphthong ö,
which can be replaced at a pinch by oe, as the dots above the o were once
an e that followed the o. It (ö) cannot be replaced by a simple o, just omitting
the dots. Unless you are American ...
Have you seen that Christopher's brother Detlef is also listed in my database ?
