How is Guglielmi, Guillaume, etc. equivalent to William? Is it by early phonetic similarity? What is the linguistic similarity?

Guglielmi is William (or 'of William').
Yes, Jensen and Olaveson certainly indicate a Scandinavian origin.

Does anyone know what name Guilielmi is likely to be now, I have been
able to work out the others its just that one. Also on the IGI I have
come across the comment relating to two of my ancestors. ie. Robert
Denning Bp abt 1660, Clyst St George.
> Relative Martha Denning Olaveson. The second is Johannes Denning Bp
Feb 7th 1657, Clyst St George. Relative Louis Christain Jensen. What
does this mean?Have I found a Scandinavian connection? Comments
gratefully recieved. Thanks in anticipation.
