Re: Given name Sussmann or Susmann #germany
Brian Stern <brians99@...>
The name combinations you list are called kinuim (singular kinui) and
this term has a legal meaning in halacha.
Searching the Given names database for Germany for the name Sussman at
Legal/Hebrew: Meshulam Zisman\Zusman Gender: M Legal Origin: Kings
So Sussman is a kinui for Meshulam.
Suss is German for sweet so Sussman = Sweet man. There are other
related names like Seussel and Seusslein. And our favorite Dr. Seuss.
Anyway, searching for kinui should give you more info.
