Re: "Yankel" - three questions #general

Yankel is a proper name. as I know it is also used in Romania.
As I know the anglicization of this name could be: Yankie.
but maybe also Ian. I'm not sure. I've heard that this name
Yankel in "christian version" was used sometimes as Jan and
especially its short form: Janek.
Best regards- J.

My great-grandfather was processed through Ellis Island with
three older siblings in 1893. His eldest brother was
as "Yankel".
