Re: The given name Leyb #general

"Leyb" is the Yiddish word for lion. Our patriarch Jacob likened his son,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Judah, to a young lion. Hence the name Yehuda Leib, meaning Yehuda is a
lion. Aryay, the Hebrew word for lion, is often found preceding Leib,
instead of Yehuda. In some cases both were used: Aryay Yehuda Leib. Loeb
is the German word for lion. The spelling is actually L-o with umlaut-b.
