Re: Wolf -Velvel or equivalent #general
And a lot of the Russian Jews named Vladimir are also Ze'ev, Velvl.The Russian name for a relative named Wolf (b.1885 in Kremenchug, present
Ukraine) was Vladimir - and he was called Volodia. I am off line while
writing and should check Prof. Esterson's Given Names Data Base for other
variants and endearments...
