Robert Fischoff <fischNONSENSEoff@...>

Hello -

I would be interested in knowing more about the man's given name of
Zatke or Zaydke. (pronounced zate-ka by my mother)

It sounds like a Yiddish diminutive, but of what?

What could be it's meaning and origin?

What would be a likely Hebrew name this would be associated with?

And what would be a good guess for an English name used as an
alternative after immigration?

Any information would be appreciated..
