Dear Marlene and cousins,

The Yiddish name Tzeryl or Tziril - note 2 syllables -
is a diminuative for Sarah - which mean princess.

Tsirl is one syllable and means jewel or gem.

Dear Cousins:
My ggggrandmother's name was Cyrel, Ciral or Ceral and
she was born about 1840 in Galicia. Does anybody know
the origins of this somewhat unusual name.
