<< Is Kreisel ever a woman's first name in East Galicia of 100 years ago?
I wonder if the name Kreisel of which you wrote could be related to the
Yiddish names: Kresel, Kreslya, Kresha, Kresya, all of which come from
the Spanish "grazia" - "grace"?
Women with one of these names adopted the English name Clara upon
immigration to the US.
