Re: Yiddish Name: Minda Udel #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

As has been noted many times, names do not "translate." Of course Biblical
names have their non-Hebrew equivalents in various languages. Minda or Mina
may derive >from the Hebrew name Menuha. Udel, or Adel, or Hudel, probably
come >from the German word for refined, eydl in Yiddish.
Joseph's late mother's name was Tsirl in Yiddish, Cecilia in Hungary.
Grandchildren named for her in Israel bear the name Adi, which is a
translation of Tsirl=jewel. Sheyna means beautiful.
Ida Selavan Schwarcz

Hello can someone tell me / translate the name Minda Udel into english
please? Also the name Tsirl Sheyna? I was told that kids were named after
dead relatives ie. Grandparents, but does this hold true for the
yiddish/jewish names too? What about the middle name? Any comments on naming
tradition in the late 1800's please...

Thanks.

Grandfather's US citizenship #general

Dear Genners,
I know that by 1900 my grandfather had become a
citizen of the USA, during his 20 years' residency
there, though he spent the better part of 50 years
living in England. Where do I contact to obtain this
record. The United States embassy in London were most
unhelpful.

Thanks for responses to "Shayva-Yiddish name" #general

abe simon <abe_simon@...>
 

Thank you all for your answers to the request to validate my grandmother's
name Shayva. Two good things came >from this.
1. My sister Shirley was named for my grandmother Shayva. Apparently there
are a few Shirley's and Sylvia's out there named Shayva.
2. The more interesting thing is we named my daughter Elizabeth after my
paternal gm Elka. Now according to this thread including Elisheva it turns
out she is named after both Gm's. Although Elizabeth could also be
Eli-shabat or Elisha-beit.
Thanks to all.

FW: Yiddish name Shayva #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

The name Sheva, sometimes pronounced Shayva, is usually a shortened form of
Batsheva. It could also possibly be Elisheva but Batsheva is a better bet.
The cantor sounds like a bit of an ignoramus, because if someone is called
Sheva, that is her name!

Can anyone please validate the name Shayva or Sheva (pronounced shave-a as
in "with a razor")? Maybe my transliteration isn't right. I have a friend in
Buffalo NY who is saying a misheberach every week for my niece to get well.
The Cantor at her shul insists there is no such name, and to do a
misheberach they need her mother's name. My sister was named for my mother's
mother who my mom told us was Shayva.
Any help on this would be appreciated.

We genealogists sure have our work cut out for us.

Our young cousin is Chone Gutel, named for his grandfather. When he went to
Hebrew school, they too told his mother no such name. I had to pull out the
family tree to show that the earliest recorded Gutel in the family was born
in 1813, and we have a record. There are several men named Chone in the
family, who were nicknamed Honey, but no ancestral Chone. So we know we're
missing someone >from the tree.

Their are several Zlatas in our extended families, all known as Lottie.
