JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Froim / Herscu #general


Yes, I would agree that "Froyim" is a nickname for Ephraim.

As to Herscu, that probably is the Roumanian pronunciation for Hirsch,
another name for Tzvi.


From: "François Chétréanu" <francois.chetreanu@...>
I've just learn that my g-g. grand-father, which was romanian, was
called Froïm Herscu CHETREANU. In vital records, he's said also as Herscu.

Does anyone know details about these given names. Froïm seems to be a
nickname for Efraïm, but Herscu ?

thanks in advance for you help,
