The names Jochems and Joghems

Joghems is in The Netherlands a not too common name, whereas Jochems is. Before the introduction (by Napoleon) of the civil reggistration these two names were often used either way including other varieties as Jochchemz, Joghhems, Joggums en Jogchems.
After the introduction of the civil reggistration the names stabilize and in Vianen we see the name Jochems and in Amsterdam the name Joghems.
In Belgium we find today many persons with the name Jochems.
