Re: Surnames #austria-czech


My husband's mother was nee DIDISHEIM. He could trace his DIDISHEIM
branch (even with different spellings) as far as 1690, when the first
DIDISHEIM took that name at their arrival in Switzerland, before
arriving in France. The same thing for his NORDMANN branch.

The name MAY may be a special case, as it is a Kohen name like KATZ.
MAY supposedly stands for "Mizzera Aharon yerusha."
