Re: Name "Gnendel" #general

If you search on the archives, for Genendel and maybe
Geneshe (various spellings of both are possible) you'll find a
long and interesting thread about the meaning of the names,
including, I think, some varying opinions.

I remember this because Genendel is my Yiddish name, too.
