Re: Samuel for Simschon? #names

Hi, although Shimshon (Samson), Shimon (Simon), and Shmu'el (Samuel) were 3 distinct people in the Bible, I've found cases among my elders and extended family where "Sam" or "Samuel" was taken as their English name although the Hebrew was "Shimon" - or something else even further afield.  

Good Luck!
