Where a name repeated itself in the cousinhood of my family the terms
Big and Little were used to mean older and younger, having no relationship
to height. I have been searching for many years now for "Little Irving"
who was differentiated >from my brother "Big Irving" in my family.Is there
any usage in Yiddish to this kind of designation?
