Nep. is an abbreviation or something else?

My ancestor church baptism record from 1842 has a "Nep." after the given name. I have not seen a middle name on anyone in my Austrian side.

His two marriage records do not show this, nor does the Baptism of his children.

Is this a name, abbreviation or something else?

The records can be found here:

The links and/or the matriken.graz-seckau website are not working for me, so I can't check: what's the rest of the name? Is it by any chance John (Johann, Johannes)? If so, I think the Nep. is most likely Nepomuk, and indicates which of the many Saint Johns the child was named after.

Links worked for me and you're correct. It's short for Johann Nepomuk.

The person was named after the Saint Johann Nepomuk, a Czech Martyr.
