Subject: Names: Scheindel, Leile(a)
I would appreciate some help with first names and their translation.
Could anyone please tell me what the English names would be for the
following:
Scheindel a female
Leile(a) a female
We think we have found them listed on a manifest >from Baltimore.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,

MODERATOR NOTE:
The question of names and their possible meaning
in other languages is often discussed.
A good starting point is the JewishGen InfoFile
on the subject:
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/#Names

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.
