JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Meaning of name Menachem Mendel #general

Bernard Weill

Menachem Mendel is a very common conjunction of two names, in fact, used to
name many Lubavitcher males. It is no different than
Tzvi Hersh
Aryeh Leib
Zev Volf
Yitzchok Eizek

And many more that are not coming to mind right now. The question that should
be asked is what is the meaning of Mendel.

I don't know if this will be answered, but I have come
across a tombstone where the name of
the deceased is "Menachem Mendal". The
entry in the local histories calls the person "Mendal".

Question: Is this the same person? The dates match.
Why would there be different names? Is Menachem an honorary
such as Mister, Doctor, etc.
