Re: Felik as a Jewish first name (Yiddish?) #general

In my genealogy searches, I found the name Felik (transliterated from
the Hebrew) which could, perhaps, be also pronounced Pelek.
The name does not seem to fit common first names. Is this like Felix?
I don't think this is a common Polish name either. Any suggestions?
Perhaps this name is familiar to the List?
Hi Avigdor,

Felek is a common Polish diminutive form of name Feliks.
BTW Jewish Record Indexing - Poland database lists 19 times name Felek as
full name, Felik is listed 12 times, Felix is listed 136 times, Feliks 355
times, and Falik 401 times.
