Dear Genners,
The Hebrew name in the docoment is according my knowledge the name
Elchunen and this name is a nickname to the Hebrew name Elchanan. It can be
also that the name is Elkoenen, also a nickname to the name Elchanan. The
problem is the third letter. This could be a Cheit but it could also be a Kuf.
Such nicknames are common in the Jewish name culture. My favourite is Elchunen.
