Re: Other names for Yitzchak? #names


MARC M COHEN
 

In addition to name variants, there were also pronunciation variants.  My maternal GGF, Leizar Wolf ROSENBERG had a first and then second wife, both named Leah.  By each wife, Leizer had a son named Itzaak (or Israel Itzaak).  The family pronounced the name of the first one "Yitzaahk" and the second one "Itzik."
