Dear Jewishgenners,

This is my first query. I have been reading and learning a lot >from your
discussion group.

Can someone help me regarding the names on my grandfather's tombstone?

The letters are aleph--beit--yud--nun--vav, hey--yud--kuf--rash,
daled--vov, vav--rash--hieroglyph.

His Yiddish name was Berl Grabina. I believe daled--vov = Dov, Hebrew
for Berl.

What names do these letters spell in Hebrew and what would be their
Yiddish equivalents?

Thank you.
