http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~randols/PS01/PS01_014.HTM there is
a comment that the frequent Prague name of Bondi is supposed to be a
Spanish/Portuguese version of Yomtov.
There is apparently a connection between the family and Rabbi Yomtov Lippman
Heller (1579-1654) who became Chief Rabbi of Bohemia.
I discovered in my researches that he was born in Wallerstein in Franconia
in Southern Germany, which is where my family came from.
My family didn't arrive in Wallerstein till about 1700.
