Re: The name Bashe or Basha #general

Dear Genners,
Amoz Chernoff asked:
Would anyone know whether the name Basha or Bashe was generally a man's
name? The individual bearing this name came >from Belarus in the early
1900's.>>>>

My answer is: According my knowledge the male name Basha ( Beit - Ayin -
Shin - Alef ) is a nickname to the Hebrew name Dov. Dov mean in English a
bear. This name Dov is not a Biblical name but a name that come in use in
the Middle ages (10 or 11 century) the word Dov is wel mention in the Bible
as a bear but not as a name. I think that the name Basha come out >from the
nickname Bar ( Beit - Ayin - Reish) and >from Ber to Barish (Beit - Ayin -
Reish - Yud - Shin ). This names are nicknames to Yissaschar and Dov. It is
a discusion if Dov is a name on itself or a nickname to Yissaschar ,like
Jehuda Arie or Binjamin Zeev. I think that all this names are independent
names.

Conclusion: Dov = Ber = Barish = Barsh = Bash = Basha or Bashe.

The are more nicknames that ending with a Sh ,I give few sample:

Mordechai = Mordush
Abraham = Abrush = Avrus = Abush
Binjamin = Binush
Jehuda = Leib = Leibush
Menachem = Manish
Uri = Feibish

Please remember all this names are male names . We find the name Basha also
as a female name as a nickname to the Hebrew Biblical name Bat-Sheva.

I have recently found a relative in France who has family members (male)
whose first/given names are Igo and Halter.
Would anyone know the Jewish/Yiddish equivalents or the names that might
have been used in Eastern Europe for those names?

I sent away for 4 SS-5's in July. Within a month, I received 3 of
them. The last one has not arrived as yet and I think my request must
have gotten lost somewhere. I mailed the 4 requests in 4 separate

TSIRLIN 1908 #general

Udi Cain
 

Dear JewishGenners.

While compiling my book about my family (mainly Chaikin), I found two post
cards >from Lausanne, >from 1908, written by my grandfather's cousin, Paulina
Wolodarski.
The post cards were written in Russian, but near her signature, there exist
a second signature, in Hebrew, Achiezer Tsirlin (Alef Chet Yud Ain Zain
Resh - Tzadi Yud Resh Lammed Yud Nun).
There are two post cards, >from the same place and person but to different
people, both bears the same signature.
Paulina Wolodarski, was originally >from Yekaterinoslav (Denieperpretrovsk),
the Ukraine.
At 1908 she was about 20 years old.

Any clue? (also with regard to Wolodarski / y)

Regards >from El Kuds. Udi Cain.

Yes, I had a great Aunt who was born Bashe Bartnovski in Zabludow Poland.
I also had a great uncle Birshe Bartnovski who was the last Jewish
blacksmith in Zabludow. Would anyone know if these could be the same
basic name just one feminine and one masculine? Also any idea what this
name means?

Would anyone know whether the name Basha or Bashe was generally a man's
name?
No, it's actually a woman's name. It's a transliteration of the Hebrew
name Bas-yah, meaning "daughter of God" (and pronounced Batya in modern or
sephardi Hebrew).

Jewish oral tradition (but not the Bible itself) gives the name of the
Pharaoh's daughter who raised Moses as "Bithia", a Graecized version of
Batya. The name Bithia was in fact used for this character in the movie
"The Ten Commandments" -- showing that the film's producer or director had
done their midrashic homework!

Defence Record Office CS(R)2b at Bourne Avenue, Hayes, Middlesex UB3 1RS.
This includes territorial, volunteer, militia and home-defence forces

Payment of the search fee does not guarantee a successful result. The MOD

out of concerns caused by the Data Protection Act 1999, required by

My great great aunt Haia or Chaya daughter of Simcha Leib WIND and Mariam

Bacau county) in 1896. I believe that they settled in Podu Torcului. They
may have emigrated to the US. I am looking for decendents or any
information about them. If anyone has Leventer relatives in Podu Turcului,
Bacau County or Braila, I would be very interested in sharing information
with them.
