The email below led me to an opposite question. Part of my family
was also >from Bialystok and an aunt who died in the Holocaust was
always known to me as "Aunt Rose." I have not been successful in
finding her birth certificate although I have obtained them for all
her siblings.

Both my mother and my uncle used "American" names here in the U.S.
different >from their birth names and I assume the same is true of my
aunt who remained in Europe.

So, what I would like to know is what was most likely her "real" name
in Poland?

Thank you.

It seems to be a common name.

Several days ago I posed a query about Russian-Polish names.
I was looking for the most probable religious *and* secular
names for the following:

All were born in Bialystock region:
... female: called Fania in the US

....Most correspondents suggested Feige for Fania, and I think
it most likely.
