I had a great grandfather named Harris, sometime called Chaskel, and
whose name was written on his grave marker as "Yehezkel ben David"

from April 05,2006:Khatskel also Kaskel-I believe it's the Yiddish
form for the Hebrew Yehezkel (English Ezekiel). in fact, the jewishgen
given names databse lists "Haskl / Khaskiel / Khaskl / Khatse / Khatsek /
Khatsele / Khatshe / Khatske / Khatskl / Kheske / Kheskl /
Khesye / Khezkeyl / Khezye / Yaskl" as all being Yiddish nicknames
for Ezekiel.
