Re: Given name of Label/Labe #ukraine

Mitzi,

My aunt told the story of how her husband, my Uncle Lou, started school
not knowing that his name was Louis. The teacher called out the name
and he didn't answer; he had always been called Labl at home. Also,
someone in a class I attended a year or two ago was named Label (a
Yiddish class, so we all gave our Jewish names). I don't think the name
was uncommon. Am not sure if it's related to Leib or not.

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.
