JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen "JOINE" as a first name #general

A great-uncle is listed in an 1897 Philadelphia Rosenbaum Bank Book ledger
and ticketed with the *first* name of "Joine". We were told by relatives
that his first name was 'Leon' when he entered this country >from the Ukraine
and have also found him in later years listed (in U.S. marriage, death &
census documents) as George Aron. We know why he took the name George Aron
in the U.S. .. but we are curious about the "Joine" first name. Is there a
translation for *Joine*? Is this a Jewish name? Any information is
appreciated.

Thank you, Nancy Pitters
