Re: Confirming Spelling of Given Name Uri #galicia #names

The correct spelling for the Hebrew name Uri is אורי, the pronunciation would be different by different cultures, the Chassidic pronunciation is Ee'ri, and in the Galician accent it would be pronounced Ee're. 

There is no Hebrew or Yiddish name אירא, so if he was Galician I would assume that obliviously the pronunciation was used instead of the correct spelling.
