Todd S. Berzon Briefly Cites Me on Astrological Determinism

Professor Todd S. Berzon, in his book Classifying Christians: Ethnography, Heresiology, and the Limits of Knowledge in Late Antiquity (2016), cites me on page 4, in footnote 17:
On astrological determinism among the Gnostics, see Horace Jeffrey Hodges, "Gnostic Liberation from Astrological Determinism: Hipparchan 'Trepidation' and the Breaking of Fate," VC 51.4 (1997): 359–73.
He also cites Professor Nicola Denzey Lewis, whom I blogged on yesterday, so he probably learned of me in her book.

This citation of my article is merely a footnote, but that's not nothing, so I wish my name were spelled right ("Jeffery," not "Jeffrey"), but I seem fated to suffer such misrecognition, due to the unusual spelling of my name.

And I wish I weren't named "Horace" . . .

What are the origins of the "Jeffery" spelling?

From my maternal grandfather: Henry Jefferson Perryman.
