I'm helping a friend with research, but I have no experience with surnames from Greek, or Crete. I have found multiple variations on Psaledakis within the same family, but am wondering what the more "original" surname might be? The same with Zoulenakis, or Zoulianakis, depending on record. There are only of this name I've found, a brother and sister in Lowell, MA.
Any help in determining the more original or "base" names for these two surnames from Crete would be most welcomed! I'm up a creek!
