Re: Given name of Label/Labe #ukraine

I believe the name Label/Labe is a variant of the Yiddish name Lieb,
diminutive "el", meaning "heart" or "love". My grandfather, named Lieb
MARIPOLSKY (>from Zwenigrad) became Louis at Ellis Island in 1910. My
11 year old grandson has as his "Jewish Name" >from his Bris Milla, the
name, doubled, in memory of his mother's grandfather, >from L'vov,"Label
Label" with English name of Lowell, so you see the name is still quite
current.
