On the topic of names, I heard a story that the rabbinic
community got involved at the time that the authorities in
Galicia began to require Jews to have last names. It seems
like, almost as a protest, the rabbis gave their followers
colors as last names. - Gelb, Blau Weis, Schwartz, etc. I
was wondering if anyone had heard the same.
