JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Patronymic v. Second Given Name #general


In my research, an individual is shown on the marriage record of his son as
"Szlomo Jankiel". This individual was known in later years to be called
Schlaime (Szlomo)Itzchok. He also had grandchildren named after him as
Schlaime Itzchok. I believe the name Jankiel to be the name of Szlomo's
father (a patronymic), and the name Itzchok to be a second given name. Can
anyone lend any help on this?
