A better book than Kaganoff, at least in my humble opinion is "Jewish
Personal Names" by Rabbi Shmuel Gorr.

MODERATOR COMMENT: I have read the Kaganoff book, not the other. There are
several more comprehensive sources for information on Jewish names which can
be found by searching the SIG archives via:

Kaganoff's book is out of print but it is easy to read, entertaining and
provides a fine overview of its subject. John Lowens, acting moderator
