Re: More questions about names #hungary

that sounds unusual, although i haven't spent time looking at the records.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
but are they using the same name, or is it written as if it were a second,
or middle name? i think that jewish names like "yitzhak ben avraham pipick"
often were recorded as "yitzhak avraham pipick", which to us might look like
the son receiving his father's name as a middle name, where in reality,
it was just a patronymic (and one that might well have disappeared after
emancipation). at least that pattern seemed to emerge >from some of the
discussions in the main jewishgen list.
