Re: Jewish name Dove #names

Dov is a fairly common Hebrew name.  It means bear and sometimes there is a bear on the individuals's matzevah (gravestone) 
The Yiddish equivalent is Baer.

I'm sorry if this sounds silly but in researching a brother of the ancestor, his lists his father's name as Dove on the death certificate.  There is nothing on the tombstone.  I don't see the name anywhere else in the family and the family I believe is from Poland.  I've not seen Dove as a name before and was wondering if it is short, Yiddish, or nickname for something else.  He lists his mother as Annie which 2 out of the 4 sons have daughter's named Fannie.
