Hi Geners,

As requested by the moderator, I went to the following site:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/

and it found no matches for Mendel or Mendal in
Poland, but found Mendle as a female name.

And then using the Daimoff... soundex, it yielded
19 names - none of which made any sense to me.

Can I ask if anyone knows what the male name
Mendel usually translated to after coming to America?

Or was it dropped and a completely different name taken.
