Can someone please tell me if the name Yehuda/Judah is the
same as the English name Louis? Am I correct that both
come >from the name Aryeh (lion).
=== As far as I know, the equivalent for Yehuda was Lion (or Leon).
In France Louis was I think more often taken as a translation for Zeev (Wolf
in german, Loup in French), i.e. Benjamin.
