This is a comment in the birth entry of Mandl Izidor born in Sarosd Sept 24 1882. He does something with his first name (utoneve) in 1899 but I can't make it out. Please help with a translation.

8/12/2019 7:19 AM Per the _alispán_'s [county official's] decision, the given name of Izidor Mandel is corrected to Aladár.

---
I'm not certain of my reading of the corrected name, but it fits the context. (Aladár was an old native Hungarian name that was revived in the 19th century. This category of name was especially common among Hungarian Jews. Others in the same vein include Géza, Sarolta, Gyula, and Jenő. They were also used by Protestants, but rarely by Catholics because of the lack of associated saints.)
