Polish names - Juljan/Julian #general
I have information about a relative (actually my grandfather's uncle)
whose name was Juljan/Julian. I couldn't find any record about him up
to now. This doesn't seem like a Jewish name. Can anyone tell if there
was a Jewish name popularly used with that name?
Also, a soundex search in JRI-Poland gives me all kinds of results
connected to the name Szlama or versions of it. Is there any
connection or is it just a glitch in the algorithm?
MODERATOR NOTE: The InfoFile on Soundex encoding at
will explain those matches between Julian and Szlama. Scroll down to
the section on Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex Coding.
