Wolf, William and Benjamin #galicia

Inacio Steinhardt

Jews in Galicia, once a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, had
usually an Jewish name and a German name. My late grandfather was
Hersh and also Herman, my late uncle Joachim was also Richard, and
my late father was Zeew, but also Wolf and William.

The second point is that the given name Zeew (Wolf) was usually
associated with Benjamin, as Yehuda was associated with Leon, etc,
My father had not Benjamin in his names, but Theodor Herzl, for
instance, was Benjamin Zeew Herzl.
