Much has been said about names in recent days. As Dr. Bernet pointed out,
there are examples of names that went a number of different ways in being
"translated" into English. My mother's grandmother, for whom she was named,
was known as Esther in Romania and Ernestina in the United States. My
mother is Evelyn; she has cousins Eleanor and Ernestine. All three have the
Hebrew name of Esther. Never assume.
