Can you provide details of the birth (including commune), so I can look for a copy of the acte and check for you?

If not, send me a Private Message on here.

1908 Census has Dina Felman (age 67, born abt 1841) married to Evel Mikhel Felman and living in Salakas, Zarasai, Kaunus.

Very confusing! Was some standardisation of names going on? The link I posted before suggests that:
"Surnames  for  the  Jews  of  the  early  19th  century  were  generally  lacking.  In  1804  a  law
applying to Jews directed that “each  Jew  must  have,  or  take,  his  own  inherited  surname,
which must be used in all records and writing without change, together with the  name given
according to faith, or at birth.”  The process of carrying out this directive went on for years.
Four years later, in 1808, a law again ordered “all Jews to take a surname, wherever that has
not yet been done.”   Jews  did  not  differ  much  in  this  regard  from  other  non-privileged
classes of society since “at the end of the 19th century, not only among peasants but even in
the merchant class, the establishment of permanent surnames was not yet complete.”

Revision or ревизия – revizia apparently just means census. 

Could the 2 names be linked to the custom of  Jewish people usually  having  two  given  names,  such  as  Abram-Zelik,  Dov-Ber,  Naftali-Girsh,  etc.  The  first  was  a  synagogue  name  used  to  sign  Hebrew documents; the second name, called kinui [кинуй], was used in everyday life.

This link may (or may not be of help!):

I'm assuming a Jewish connection de to the name Izrel.
