JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Unusual naming customs - Jacob Moses Rydz #general

Nick Rich <nick@...>

Thanks to all who responded to my question about superstition when naming
children after deceased brothers. I was surprised to get so many replies
from people who have this exact same circumstance in their own family. I
have come to the conclusion that maybe this was far more commonplace that I
ever imagined, and that the determination to honour the Father, naming a son
after him, far outweighed any superstitions they may have had. I found it
astounding that all 6 sons should name their first born sons Jacob, and
makes me feel even prouder of the fact that I too named my first born -

Again, many thanks to all, this is the most pleasant and helpful group
imaginable, long may it continue.

Kind regards to all,

Nick Rich
