Re: Trying to get spellings of Hebrew names for gravestone #hungary
In all cases that I am aware of (including looking at all of the our Montreal burial database), Shea is short for Yehoshua. In Hebrew it is Yod Hey Vav Shin Ayin.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The English translation of Yehoshua is Joshua, but that doesn't mean he used it. People often picked names that they simply liked or felt comfortable with.
Falk/Falik is a known kinnui (nickname) associated with Yehoshua and it confirms the original Hebrew name.
