My g'g'grandmother's first name was listed on a marriage record as
"Pye." Does anybody have any resources that might cast some light
on this name, where it might have been used, what it means?
Alexander Harkavy's "Yiddish-English-Hebrew Dictionary" (NY: YIVO &
Schocken Books, 2nd Ed. 1928, reprinted 1988) lists Pya as a Yiddish
name, short for Zipporah.
