here's the grave stone of the famous Lithuanian cinematographer Eduard Tisse:

I'm having a bit of trouble finding the cemetary.



"Tisse was born Kazimirovich Nikolaitis in Lithuania of Catholic Lithuanian parents; his father was Kazimir Nikolaitis, and his mother was of Swedish extraction. For some reason, the son took the name Edouard, changed his surname to Tisse, and claimed to be German. (Later, in the early 1930s, when it was extremely unpopular to be German, he explained that a mistake had been made, and that he was really Lithuanian.)"
From: Ronald Bergan, Sergei Eisenstein: A Life in Conflict, The Overlook Press/Peter Mayer Publishers, Inc.: Woodstock, New York (1999), page 90

Kazimirovich is a patronymic, thus actually his middle name. So Eduard probably is his original name. tisse seems to be a shortening of Nikolaitis.
