Re: The meaning of Memeh Fryme #galicia #yiddish


My Bessarabian  (Orgiev, Kishinev) Grandmother referred to an aunt who helped raise her after her mother died as the Meemah.
I always thought it referred to a treasured aunt.
I've asked Yiddish speakers before but none knew this word. So happy to hear that what I always knew has been validated.
