Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

Ida is Greek! It was a very high class name at the turn of the century.
When I was born, 1930, the German Jews were no longer naming their girls
Ida, but many Eastern European immigrants considered it a very high status
name for a girl whose Hebrew name was Haya.

<< From: <mouallem@...>
I just recently found out my Hebrew name and cannot find a translation
for it. Can anyone tell me what it translates to in english? The name
is Itka (aleph-yod-tet-qof-ayin). Thanks in advance. >>
I have an aunt (still alive, born 1916) whose given name is Itta and she
is known among friends under Russified name Ida.
