I disagree with Sally Bruckheimer's comments. Most of my female ancestors who came over from the Suwalki Lomza gubernias in NE Poland/borders of Lithuania to the UK between 1865 and 1875 had Hebrew names e.g. Leah, Rachel, Rebecca, Hadassah, Miriam, Sarah, Hannah, Asnah, Dinah, Deborah. Some had Yiddish names too e.g. Shaina most commonly.
