Bessie #general


Matt Friedman
 

For what its worth. A Bessie in our family was
officially named "Beatrice," which I strongly suscpect
was not her birth name in Eastern Europe! She was
called "Bessie" by some and "Grandma B" by others.
This delightful woman died a few years ago at 101!
I don't know if there were any traditional
"Americanization" patterns associated with this name.
