On Dec. 27,03 Steve Orlen (sorlen@email.arizona.edu) asked what the Yiddish
or Hebrew name might have been for someone named "Jon,"

Probably the first name of Mr. Orlen's great-great grandfather, who lived in
Boguslav near Kiev, was "Iona."

I suggest this name in part because the son of my maternal grandfather's
brother, Iosif BELKOWSKY was named Iona. "My" Iona taught physics in a high school
in Berdichev and later moved to Kiev.
