<< My father does not remember his Hebrew name, but
an aunt of his knows that it has to sound something
like Razzle, since some families members would call
him Razzle-Dazzle as a play on his Hebrew name. This
would have been by Lithuanian immigrants (or their
children) in Boston in the 1940s and 50s.

Does it sound familiar to anyone? I have always assumed
it was Yisrael, but perhaps there is a better match. >>
