Re: The name Yom Tov #lithuania #poland
The name Yom Tov can stand on its own - it doesn't have to be combined with Jacob or any other name. I had a relative named Shlomo Yom Tov who, according to another relative was was named after Yom Tov Lipman Heller because he was a relative, but I have not been able to confirm that connection.
