Surnames: Vahlenkamp, Wallenkamp, Valenkamph, Vahlenkampf,
The l and the r are both lateral signs,
that's why some Eastern cultures don't know the differences between those two signs.

My ancestors, Wallenkamp, came from Westfalen, a region in Western Germany to Holland in the eightteenth century. There are still a few people with that name in Germany. Round 1850 some German Wallenkamp's
emigrated to Wisconsin , farmers.
Some emigrated to Sweden (around 1700) and there name was changed into Valenkamph. In 1898 (?) Theodore V.C. Valenkamph (1868- 1924), a famous painter, emigrated to USA.
There are still descendants with that name in the USA.
There is evidence Vahlenkampf(f) is also far-away family. Also some of Wal(l)enkamp emigrated from Bayern to Russia (before 1917).

Vahlenkamp's came from Westfalen, near to our
