Re: Given name Ksyel

Eric Mack

I would guess יקותיאל, which is rendered as  "Yekusiel" in Ashkenazic pronunciation, and "Yekutiel" in S'fardit.

The name is from the Bible, Chronicles I, 4:18

"וְאִשְׁתּוֹ הַיְהֻדִיָּה יָלְדָה אֶת יֶרֶד אֲבִי גְדוֹר וְאֶת חֶבֶר אֲבִי שׂוֹכוֹ וְאֶת יְקוּתִיאֵל אֲבִי זָנוֹחַ" (דברי הימים א', ד', י''ח).

Sefaria translates that verse as:
And his Judahite wife bore Jered father of Gedor, Heber father of Soco, and Jekuthiel father of Zanoah. These were the sons of Bithiah daughter of Pharaoh, whom Mered married.

On the ships manifest it says the child’s name was Ksyel. I’m trying to figure out what that might have become in English?
Any suggestions? Mother was Sure Lindenbaum
