Searching for Hebrew Name #general

There is no way to know what Richard's Hebrew name is since there is no one
to ask. Because Richard was not made aware of his Hebrew name it is possible
he may not even have been given a Hebrew name.

In such a case a Richard's he may designate his own Hebrew name plus son of
Jacob. For example Reuven ben Ya'akov.

Dear Jewish Gen,

I am wondering if anyone knows about a place called Ekaterubiskav,
Ukraine. My Dad's father's brother came >from this city or state. I am
not sure where it is but when I put the name on to Google nothing came
up. Could you assist me in this quest for information.

My patnernal grandfather was Ezekiel Drongofsky or Ike Drongofsky who
married Katie Milman in Montreal in 1908
Ike or Ezekiel's brother was Morris Drongofsky and on his papers it
indicates he is >from Ekaterubiskav, Ukraine.

On Ike's papers of naturalization it states he is >from Pinsk.

Thanks for your assistance.

Re: Finding Hebrew names #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Hebrew names are like other names in at least one respect - they are chosen
by the parents, or later by the person who chooses to use a name other than
one given at birth. They are not inherent in one's social or religious
position, nor are they strictly inherited.

You say that William considered himself a "modern Jew." It is then possible
that he never gave a Hebrew name to his son, Richard. Depending on
circumstances of how William came to consider himself a "modern Jew," he,
too may not have been given a Hebrew name.

Barbara,

Please note: There are no guarantees that anybody's English name
matches their Hebrew name and visa versa. I know too many people that
were named in Hebrew for their relatives, but their English names were
different because their parents liked the English names.

Having said that - I am confident that William's Hebrew name was Zev,
because:
1) He was named after his grandfather Wolf and Zev means Wolf in
Hebrew.
2) Most Zev's I know are named William, Warren and Walter, because of
the W.
3) All the above describes me, too ;-)

As for Richard, that is quite open. Once might assume that Hebrew name
started with R, but which do you choose? I suppose this calls for a
little genealogical sleuthing and determining if Richard was named for
one his relatives. I am sure that your rabbi has a solution that would
allow you and your son to choose a name and stick with it.

William's son was Richard. Richard has no idea what his Hebrew name
is, nor that of his father. Richard wants to know so that he can use
the correct name when he is called to read the Torah.

Re: Finding Hebrew names #general

Wolf is a Jewish Name. So if William is named after Wolf then his
Jewish name is Wolf.

Assuming that Williams Jewish and English name are the same (Jacob)
then his Jewish name is Wolf ben Jacob.

As to Richard, unless he knows who he was named for and there Jewish
name, then all he can assume is he is "something ben Jacob".

The only way to be 100% sure is to contact the Moyals in the area where
he was born and to see if they will check there records for his bris.

I know lots of Richards and all have very different Jewish names. The
most common I've come I've seen is Rachmil. Of course, that's no
assurance that is his Jewish name.
