Re: Motchi married Heshi...so who's Heshi #lithuania
Heshi may have actually been Chashe if you are using the scenario that Motchi was a male relative….

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Motchi married Heshi...so who's Heshi #givenname #lithuania #names
I posted recently asking for help with the name Motchi; many thanks to everyone who responded both publicly and privately. Everyone agreed that Motchi is Mordechai (or a related name). Which means Motchi is a man. And which presents our next problem. Both my cousin and I have oral stories (from completely separate sources) in which Motchi is married to Heshi. We had previously both operated on the assumption that Heshi was short for Hirsh/Girsh and that Motchi must be a woman. However, with this new complete agreement that Motchi is a man, that puts us back a step with regard to Heshi. I have once again consulted all the sources I can find and come up with little certainty. What is Heshi likely to be a "nickname" for if Heshi is a woman? Again, thanks very much in advance for everyone's help.
