Latvia SIG #Latvia RE: Origin of the name Beines #latvia


Gary Mokotoff: <mokotoff@...>
 

According to "A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names", Beines is a variant
of Bendit which has its origins in the Christian name Benedictus (blessed).
The Hebrew equivalent would be Boruch (blessed). I had a granduncle named
Beines.
