Re: Given name of Label/Labe #ukraine

The name is pronounced Leyb and means lion and is quite common. It is Aryeh
in Hebrew and when a man is called to the Torah he is called Aryeh Leib,
sometimes even with the added name Yehuda (Judah) because the lion was the
symbol of the tribe of Judah. Leybl is simply the diminuitive of Leyb.

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.
