JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Origins of Jewish Names #general
A friend emailed the following link which is an article originally appearing on
Jan 8, in SLATE. Although I have some questions regarding some of the origins of
some of the names, I found it to be interesting and thought others on the list
would, as well.
I have no affiliation with SLATE or Business Insider.
