Michael Bernet asked if there is any connection between a Jewish BONDI
family member and Bondi Beach in Australia.

It is my understanding that the source of the word Bondi, in the name of
famous Bondi Beach, is an aboriginal word meaning sound of tumbling waters
and thus has no connection with any BONDI family. There is also a small
French town called Bondy or Bondi. But whether this name has any connection
with a BONDI family is something I do not know.
