| ||It is clear that the "Snow Fox"
Christian himself wrote his name as "Christian Kaupp", but this spelling is seldom seen thereafter (1738). The
spellings Kaub and Kaup were seemingly preferred for the first generation descendents of Christian and Barbara Kaub.
After this the Kaub variant seems to have been superseded by Kaup this later yielding to Koup and Coup although Kaup
also continued to be used. This is an observed general trend, not a "hard-and-fast" rule.
The name Kaupp has rarely, if at all, been found to refer to the family of Christian and Barbara Kaub.|
