Wolf, William, Benjamin #galicia

Marion Hattenbach Bernstein

Also, does anyone know if the first name of Wolf might be William
or Benjamin?
Wolf and Benjamin are often related -- due to Jacob's comparing
Benjamin to a wolf. My father was a Walter Benjamin with the Hebrew
name Binyamin. His grandfather was a Wolf/Binyamin. The Yiddish
equivalent of Wolf, Velvel, is often used, and many Benjamin/Wolfs
become Williams in the U.S. Check out the Given Names Database on
