From the Nova Scotia Archives website An Acadian Parish Remembered
The Registers of St. Jean-Baptiste, Annapolis Royal, 1702-1755

"In order to preserve the originality and authenticity of the archival record, names appearing in the database have been transcribed there in the exact form in which they appear in the register entry."

Any memorials created or corrected since late August 2023 use the spelling on the primary burial record if one is available for memorials with no gravestone. A field for entering alternate surname spellings on Find-a-Grave has been requested.

French-Canadians and Acadians do not have middle names (Except for a name added at the sacrament of confirmation?). If there is no hyphen between two given names on the primary burial record, there will be no hyphen between the given names on new and corrected memorials. I am not sure how they turn up in search results. Women use the surname they were born with whether or not they marry, and are recorded that way in parish registers with very rare exceptions to that rule.

From the Naming Memorials:

Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and traditionally is used if the individual was married AND TOOK THE SPOUSES' LAST NAME AS THEIR NEW LAST NAME. If the deceased was never married, then the last name is placed in the Last Name field, NOT in the Maiden Name field.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone. If the interred had more than one last name, they may be added to the last name field. Separate each last name with a space. Our Memorial Search will search all names in the last name field. If other possible spellings, place this information in the bio. Our Memorial Search can search for similar name spellings under more search options. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
