Talk:Mies van der Rohe
He was born Maria Ludwig Michael Mies. You are correct about his full name at the end of his life. I have yet to see a full explanation of how how that evolved, but Rohe was his mothers maiden name. I used the name for him that I see most frequently, including here: http://miessociety.org/mies/projects/
I don't feel strongly about it. Either way seems defensible...
