My aunt Nechama, who came to Canada in 1924, was named Anne in English. My
mother, who also had a name with a hard-to-pronounce "ch," also took the
name Anne in English. Both families deliberately chose a name that was
easy to pronounce and spell in English -- with little or no relationship to
the original names. That seems to be often the case.
