Re: Zelman-Samuel #belarus

My name happened to be Zalman which is more accurate than Zelman.
The origin of this name is Shlomo Hameleh - King Shlomo or Salomon.
Salomon in turn became Salman and then Zalman.
So, Zalman and Salomon are the same names.
Although, Samuel is different which is Shmuel in Hebrew, probably
many Jews preffered to use Samuel as a replacement to Zalman-
Salomon, because it sounded very close to Salomon.
