Since the thread is continuing, I may as well repeat what I had written to
Abe Simon privately re Sheva:

My Yiddish name *is* Sheva. And always has been! Pronounced "shayva"- in my
Dad's Litvak accent !

I know of others in my family and friends who share the same Yiddish name!
Mostly Sylvias' and Shirleys'!

And then there is the Hindu goddess Sheva!

So the Cantor should have done a bit of research!
