Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Georg /Gillel (Hillel) given names #ukraine

Nathalie Ried <njried@...>

Shalom to all,

I tried to use the Given Names database but it doesn't seem to be
available, so I'm asking for your help :
I'm trying to get an idea of whether the Hebrew name Hillel (Gillel
following the Russian pronunciation) was commonly associated with the
Russian given name Georg in the late 19th, early 20th century in
I have some clues suggesting my grandfather George, born in Rostov in
1899 in an Odessa-based family, may have been given the Hebrew name
Gillel / Hillel but I lack conclusive evidence.

Any example would be of interest
Thanks a lot in advance and best >from France,
