Jaime=Chaim? #latinamerica


Myron Chijner <mchijner@...>
 

Hi,
Would someone coming >from eastern europe to South America change
their name >from Chaim to Jaime. I am assuming that the pronunciation
would be the same because of the "j"="h" sound in spanish and
portuguese. I am not making a reference to the meaning of the names,
but only to the pronunciation. I would be interested if others have
seen this change.

Thanks,
