Zlata-Lottie fm. Romania #romania
Hi Shellie,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In my family, Zlate/Lottie and Sarolta/Charlotte/Sara were completely
different names. My maternal grandmother Lottie BERKOVIC KAHAN b.
1878 Avas-Ujvaros, Hungary (now Orasu Nou, Romania) was Zlate/
Lottie. The name on her matzeva is Zlate. Her name was not Sara or
Sarolta, which is the Hungarian version of Charlotte. I do, however,
have a great aunt Sarolta/Sara FARKAS and another great-aunt Sara/
Szerena both >from eastern Szatmar megye (Transylvania). My mother
Lillie Ann, the first girl born after my grandparents came >from
Sziget, was Chana Leah.
There are a number of good sources for Hungarian-Jewish given names
including a list that Jared Suess developed at
