Surname FINEL #france

Errol Schneegurt
 

Hi,
I am new to this group and I am currently working on the surname FINEL
(Finnel) >from the city of Lviv in the Ukraine.
I am trying to determine the origin of the name and if it originated in
France.
There are FINEL's living in Belgium that are also part of this family.
When I first started my research I contacted a FINEL in the USA who said
that his family was >from France and the family name was originally Finkel.
They had changed it to FINEL because Finkel was to Jewish.
I also found a birth record >from Torno back in the late 1700's for a Sarah
FINEL.

Any light on the subject would be appreciated.
