JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Naming Pattern among Ashkenazic Jews #general


The tradition of parents alternating when choosing names (mother
first, father second and so on) is very popular among many Hassidic
communities. The tradition goes even further to the second generation,
i.e. when a son/daughter gets a turn to name a baby >from his/her
family, the grandparents choose the name according to the above
pattern, except if there was a recent death in the family.
