Re: Simcha name in English? #general
Ben Noach <bnnch@...>
In my case:-toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My father's name was Simcha, but officially he was called Salomon Mozes
(Dutch).Salomon may therefore be a proper equivalent for "Simcha".
He was born on the evening of Tisha be-Av(a day of mourning), and Simcha
meaning Joy, this was the reason for giving this name.So far the tradition.
But my research showed that the gravestone of his grandfather Salomon
Noach also gave "Simcha" as the Hebrew equivalent, so again I think that
Salomon can be seen as the proper equivalent of the Hebrew/Yiddish Simcha.
Shalom >from Israel,
