There were three different names: Ezer(Eyzer) like the previous Israeli
President Ezer Weizmann, Ozer and Ezra.

Ezra was rarely used in eastern Europe but was popular among Baghdadi Jews.

"The given name "Ezra" is known in my family >from Ivnitsa. At least one record
in the index shows an "Ejzor" (probably Litvak pronunciation of Oyzer/Ozer,
to rhyme with "razor")".
