Robert Hanscom asked about the origin of name Bohumir. Bohumir is typical
Slavic/Czech name, which can be found in most of the Slavic languages in
different forms. It means the one who is dear to the god. With a 2nd name
being Jewish, it might indicate, that the person has been baptized or wanted
underline connection to the Czechs and not to the Jews
