English name Lucy-Yiddish/Hebrew name what? #general


Roberta Sheps
 

Can anyone suggest an original name in Yiddish or Hebrew for the English
"Lucy"? A cousin of my father's was named Lucille, and a search further
back in the family has turned up a "Lucy". I cannot believe that "Lucy",
born in the Ukraine in the nineteenth century could have been so named. I
suspect that the person who originally supplied the information was giving
the name that would have been used in North America. It would be nice to be
able to link up these two women.

Many thanks,
