Given Name "Yazel" #general


Judith Singer
 

Hi - I have a relative whose name is recalled as "Yazel". I am pretty
sure that this was a nickname, but his actual name is lost in the
mists of time. Only his American name, Harry, appears on his
gravestone, unfortunately. Yazel does not appear in the JewishGen
Given Name Database or in Boris Feldblyum's book, Russian-Jewish Given
Names.

Does anyone know if Yazel is a nickname and if so, what the original
name might be? Knowing that it is a nickname for a particular name may
help me tie up a couple of loose strands of our genealogy.

Thank you all

Judith Singer
