Sephardic SIG #Sephardim Bonguda or Benduda #sephardic


Dear all,

Does anyone know the meaning of the Spanish or Catalan feminine given
name Bonguda or Benguda?
This was the name of the wife of Rabbi Shimon ben Tsemah DURAN. They
were expelled >from Mallorca in 1391 and found refuge in Algiers.
Bonguda was a direct descendant of Nahmanides (Rabbi Nahman ben Moshe)
from gerona, Spain.
Thank you in advance for your help,

Mathilde Tagger
