re equivalent names #lithuania


Margaret Fullarton and David Mark <fullmark@...>
 

Well, you haven't failed me yet so here is another query!
We have all these weird first names in our family for which I cannot
find the Jewish equivalent and they are not even western names really so
I wonder does anybody, particularly in the UK know what they replace?
e.g. My father in law's name is Leslie and his Jewish name is Laizer,
his brother is Bernard and he has cousins too with this name but it is
more Catholic than the Pope so where does this come from?

Bernard
Harris
Barnet(t)
Fanny
Ralph
Ellis
Ettie
Netta
Rose
Lily
Bertha
Bessie

I'd be obliged - the given name index has helped me out with a few but
these I cannot find and therefore I cannot look them up in the
databases.

Thankyou
Margaret Fullarton Mark
