Friday 04 Sep 2009: Mozart's real full name
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was baptised 28 January 1756 in Salzburg as Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. Later in life the famous composer dropped the first two names (which are after the saint's name whose feast day he was born on) and Latinised the Greek Theophilus into Amadeus.
