Re: How many "first names" did people have? #names

Hi,

I think that all problems are due to the reading of handwriting names. It is possible to read “a” instead of “e” and vice versa,  “n” instead of “u”, “k” instead of “h” or even “lc”, “c” instead of “e”, etc. All “version” of “Baruch” can be explained by such misinterpretation.

Best regards,

Pawel Tomaszewski
