Subject: Names: Scheindel, Leile(a)
I would appreciate some help with first names and their translation.
Leiele is a Yidish diminutive of the name Leah
Scheindel is a pet name of Scheina in Yidish meaning beautiful.
So the English variant for Scheina could be any name
chosen, or close phonetically, or vocal.
