Re: Yiddish or Hebrew name for IDA #belarus #names

I haven't been following this topic, but my grandmother's name in St
Petersburg was Ita, pronounced /EEta/.  If you say it with an American
accent the t becomes d, and you get Eda,  which was her name in
America.  I never thought this was a problem name.
