Re: Hebrew Given name on headstone #translation

One must remember most headstones were not composed by the deceased,
the person ordering the stone may not know the official name. Especially if
not family. But even family, my father's cousin told me her first name is not
Miriam, but that is the name everyone, including her children, new her as.

Sheintche the daughter of Reb Reuven. It is Yiddish and probably the diminutive of Sheineh.  Sheine means beautiful in Yiddish and the Hebrew equivalent would be "Yaffa".
