Bavaria on the other hand gradually reserved von for nobles, although non-nobles sometimes held on to their von by combining it into the family name: von Sicht became Vonsicht, von Hof became Vonhof, etc. When commoners were ennobled, they would typically add von to their name von Goethe, von Schillerbut sometimes would pick an additional name to put the von on- something grand, or the site of the battle they won their spurs at.
