Origin of certain popular Jewish given names in the USA - Seymour, Irving, Jerome #germany


Michael Marx <mhmarx@...>
 

The given names Seymour, Irving, and Jerome became popular among American Jews
even though they were never popular among Americans generally nor do
they appear to have any Jewish associations. Is there an explanation for this?
