Lithuania SIG #Lithuania RE: alternatives of the name "Chonan" #lithuania

Dear Fellow LitvakSIGers,
There is really not any relationship between the two Hebrew names Khone
(listed as an independent name in and of itself in the book Get Mesudar) and Solomon. It also lists Hanan & Khone as independent names. Both, however, may be connected with the name Elhanan -although they are independent and stand alone.
Perhaps someone should do a study on the choice of names that our relatives made. My paternal grandfather's English name, including that used on his citizenship papers was Sam. As a youngster he was known as Srul and for some reason he chose the name Sam (not Samuel). His Hebrew name, of
course was Yisrael. I also have the same phenomenon on my mother's side
where my maternal grandmother's brother Sam actually bore the name Yisrael.
With best wishes >from Jerusalem.
Shalom Bronstein, Jerusalem

Would "Khone" be a reasonable equivalent to "Chonan"? Any chance >thateither would be equivalent to "Solomon"?
