The name is probably "Tanchum". It comes >from the same root as the male
names Menachem, Nachum, Nachman and Nechemia and the female name Nechama.

It is not related to the name Natan.

Does anyone know the given name "Tanchen", also
written "Tanchel" and "Tanchem"? This person was born
in Latvia circa 1852. I'm guessing that it is a
nickname for "Natan," but I don't know for sure.
