Would anyone know the Hebrew equivalent(s) of the given name Vilmos? Is
there anywhere on the web where one can look up secular given names and
their Hebrew equivalents?

Moderator: As countless subscribers have previously indicated, there are no fixed Hungarian counterparts to Yiddish or Hebrew counterparts for Hungarian names and, conversely and no fixed Yiddish or Hebrew versions of secular Hungarian names. Those who wanted to Magyarize their shtetl names might pick a name that sounded similar or began with the same letter but might as easily pick a name that bore no resemblance whatsoever. Check the Hungarian SIG archives for the many discussions that we've had on this topic and for on-line references. Please respond off-list if you have specific suggestions.
