Re: Given name naming patterns in Latvia, 1800s-1900s #latvia

Itzig Ber is not the same as Ber. Haim Isaak is not the same as Itzig.  Actually Itzig isn't the same as Isaak either.

Double names were common in Eastern Europe. They were not a first and middle name as we know them, but both parts were parts of the given name and equal.
