It seems that Mortimer is listed as "Uncle Mortimer" in a Swedish
publication, but in the English language...

Right. I wrote there "Not the single niece Melody, but the twin nieces
who appear under different names in some stories (Millie and Tillie,
Pammy and Tammy)" to emphasize that Melody is a different character.

Okay, I'll adjust the text.

The name "Minet" may have been a misremembering from my side. The cat's
name is Dinkie alright.

I'm not sure why we list Paperetta Ye-Ye also as English name. This may
be a bug in the Inducks software, where it confuses "original name" and
"English name".
