Given Name "Jon" from Boguslav #general


Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

A now deceased relative said that my great-great-grandfather BELKIND, who
was registered in Borisov but lived in Boguslav (near Kiev), had the given
name "Jon." Is this likely? (I know that Ivan is the Russian name for
John.) Is there a Yiddish or Hebrew name that *sounds* close to Jon?

Best, for the Holidays,
