There were a lot of discussions how to transliterate "Wales" in
Serbian. As Jimmy's name is the same as the name for the country Wales
and we have traditional pronunciation/spelling Vels, it was the first
option. Then, we asked Jimmy how he would like to have his surname
transcribed, which was "Vejls" :)

It is possible to write in both alphabets on Wikipedia in Serbian. If
you want to see the article in the other alphabet, you should click on
"ћирлица" (or "latinica") tab.
