Besie has a double  given name:  Batya bat-Tzion    See:
Compare to:
She is the daughter of Yakov Moshe the Kohane.
The pronunciation Batya/Basya is explained in Dr. Ash's reply.

Not only is Bessie's father's name there but also the grandfather.  This is new to me.  Does this mean the father whose name does not have h'Kohane did something to lose the status of a Kohane?

Next question.  Is her given name really Bessie in Hebrew?

Thank you in advance for your interest.
