Question about Jewish naming customs #general


Mel Werbach <mwerbach@...>
 

According to a Ukrainian 1875 register, my great grandfather's name was
Chaim-Mechel Abramovitch Verbukh.

Based on Jewish naming customs of the time, what would *his* father's first name
have been? Mechel, Abraham, or ?? (His sons were Menachim Chaim and Shulim
Chaim.)

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.


Mel (Menachim) Werbach
