JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Statistical equilvalent of the name Jerome #general
Benzy Shani <bshani@...>
Yes, we all know that there are no rules regarding the "pairings" of Jewish
and local civil names. Yes, some chose names that shared an initial; some
chose names that shared meaning; some chose names that shared general sound;
some chose names that shared nothing evident. But - let's face it - some
names are paired more often than others. Would anyone have input as to what
could have been such a statistical equivalent to the name Jerome, in New
York, in th e'20s and '30s?
Thanks in advance,
