German SIG #Germany Given Name "Eselein" #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>

I have come across the rather unusual given name 'Eselein' in some documents from
Burgpreppach in Lower Franconia dated in 1776.
In German the name means 'little donkey' with the ending -lein being particularly
southern German.

Can anybody please tell me the Yiddish or Hebrew equivalent? Many thanks,
