Romanian names - Please help! #romania


Lynne Saionz
 

My grandmother immigrated to the US in 1907 after a pogram, I believe >from
Piatra-Neamt or a nearby village. Her name in English was "Jennie" (SUFFRIN),
which in Yiddush would have been something like Shaindel, but I never knew her
to use any name but Jennie. Can anyone tell me what the equivalent first name
might have been in Rumanian? Is there any common first name in Romanian that
sounds like "Jennie"? Is something like "Janek" a possibility? Or is that a
boy's name?

I would appreciate any suggestions as I have been unable to find any immigration
records for her so far and I have no idea what other names to look for.

Many thanks to all,
Lynne
