Re: Given name of Label/Labe #ukraine


Larry R. Feder <lrfeder@...>
 

The name Leib is Yiddish for Aryeh or Yehuda, which refers to lion. It is
in fact a very common name. Label is a nickname. Many of my cousins, my
father-in-law, as well as my brother have this name.

Mitzi Smetters asks:

Two of my gggrandfathers had the given name of Label or Labe (Label
MICHELSON b. 1820 in Prussia and Labe BOBROV/BABROV of the same
generation).
I have not seen this given name of Label or Labe anywhere else. Is any
one familiar with this as a given name? Could it be a title rather than
a name.
