Re: Naming pattern - TURKUS #general


Sue Frank
 

My understanding is that patronymics were commonly used until about the mid 19th century among Ashkenazi Jews. However there does seem to be a difference here in that one of my ancestors was Iciek Leibkovich Rosenberg (so, son of Leib), whereas yours don’t appear to have the “kovich” suffix. Maybe this has something to do with the naming custom in the region where they originated rather than where they were living at the time. 
It’s curious, though, and not a common surname either, I don’t think. Is there any family rumour that they may have originated in more southern parts of Europe. Any DNA clues?

While researching my Turkus ancestry, I noted an interesting series of names which seems odd for Ashkenazi Jews.
 
These are the names and their relationship to me -
5th  ggrandfather     ELIASZ Turkus
4th  ggrandfather  - DAWID ELIASZ Turkus
Dawid's son - Ahron DAVID Turkus; Dawid's daughter Szosza was my 3rd great-grandmother 
 
Would this repetition of names be an acceptable pattern for Ashkenazi Jews?
 
Many thanks
