I assume that you have seen the ten Boos names listed at URL
http://www.angelfire.com/ks/gerrus/ShipsBaltMar1909.html, which includes
Latjeroma. One of my colleagues here at the University of Colorado is a
Russian scientist and she says that Latjeroma is not a russian first
name, it is not familiar in Russia and that it perhaps is a French name.
Good luck with your search! It is an interesting mystery.
