Re: First name of Zelik #names


Kenneth Ryesky
 

"Zelik" is the Yiddish form of the German "Selig" (which means "Holy.")

The name can (but does not necessarily have to) be a Yiddish rendition of Solomon.

[An analogous situation pertains to my own name.  In English I am Kenneth, but my Hebrew name (by which I am called up to the Torah when shuls are operational) is Kalman, a name that derives from the Greek "Kalonymos."].
