Re: Chaya #general

Vivian Kahn

My name is Chaya and I am named after someone--my maternal grandfather
Chaim, who died in 1938, before I was born. Chaya is also a Hebrew
version of Vivian, my secular name. It's possible that my Hungarian
family had a different approach to naming traditions but, as we've said
so many times, there are very few hard and fast rules in genealogy.

Chaya is a special name. Coming >from the word Chai (life), it could
be given or added to anyone who has been through some kind of illness to
cheat the "angel of death."
