Reuven Liebes <reuvel@...>
Who can explain?
My grandfather's name was Minczeles (Mintseles) but for unknown
reason he changed it to Liebes. I was told that in German the
meaning of "mintseles" was "small coins." I saw that "Mintseles"
was one of Jewish names in Galicia during Austrian times.
What was the origin of this name?
