comment Who was R' Jacob Pidanki?
[Posted as an answer and mod-converted to a comment; part 1:] "Alex, why is one blogger's transliteration more authoritative than that of Judaica Press?" I am the blogger. It was not my transliteration, but a quotation. It was Israel Solomons' transliteration in his 1915 article on Haham Nieto. The reason why his transliteration is more authoritative than Judaica Press (in this case) is because he was a historian and he knew how this particular Sephardic surname was spelled in Latin letters. You could ask the same thing about many names.
