Re: Alternates for first name Blimah #names
I kind of wonder which search engine doesn't know Blima and Bluma are the same name. The "u" and "i" (short "i") are often interchangeable in some Yiddish dialects - Polish being one of them. So "Blima" is another way of pronouncing Bluma. As are Blime[h] and Blume[h]
You may be entering an incorrect surname if you're "not finding anything".
When I entered "Blima" in JRI Poland, without a surname, I found - literally - thousand and thousand of records.
Another name for Bluma is Flora
