"Mozart first name was not Wolfgang Amadeus"

Music genius was baptized with the name Johannes Theophilus Wolfgangus Chrysosto-mus. But Wolfgang surname was imposed. Mozart himself (1756 - 1791), used with pleasure the form of the name Amade and he signed often with name Wolfgang Amade. But Amadeus was more often used (is the Latin translation of Theophilus). "Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart" was imposed only in twentieth century.
