Has anyone heard of the name "Marem"? My great-grandmother >from
NovyBuk,Odessa was called Marem until she reached Argentina where they
named her Maria. Her Russian passport states her name as Marina.
I have asked the rabbi and he states he does not recognize this name as
Yiddish or Hebrew and says it is most likely Miriam. The family insists
it was Marem.
Thanks for your suggestions,
