Other names for Isaac #germany #names


A family photo of a soldier in a WWI Austrian army uniform is labeled "George Bloomfield." A newspaper article from 1915/16 says that this "George," the second cousin of a member of our family, was killed on the western front. I know that his family name was Blumenfeld, which almost all of those who emigrated changed to Bloomfield. But in all of the birth records for their home village of Momberg in Hessen I find no "Georg." There is also no "Georg" listed in the Verlustlisten for WWI. The Blumenfelds we are related to that fell in the war were Isaac and Moritz -- second cousins. Comparing photos of Isaac and "George" it appears they could be the same person. Has "Georg" been used in other situations as a "translation" of the name "Isaac?"
