Based on its meaning as stated here, Gitel is often associated with the
Hebrew female name Tova.

I missed the posting that "mentioned Daniel as being Gedalia in Hebrew."
If that is indeed what the posting said, the poster was entirely
misinformed. Daniel is not Gedaliah in Hebrew, nor vice versa. Both
Daniel and Gedaliah are biblical Hebrew names--of two entirely different
people. For Daniel, see the book of Daniel. For Gedaliah, see throughout
the Book of Jeremiah 39:14, and throughout chapters 40-41. Gedaliah was
the Governor of Judaea appointed by the Babylonian king in the last years
of the Kingdom of Judah before the Babylonian Exile.

Of course, that's not to say that a child with the Hebrew name Gedalia
could not have been given the "English" name Daniel -- there's nothing to
prevent that >from happening! However, as I said, Daniel is in fact a
Hebrew name completely unconnected with Gedaliah.

Nor for that matter has Gitel, which is not Hebrew at all, but is a
diminutive of the German word "gut" and means, in effect, "good little
girl."

Re: First name "Brit" #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Is there such a name "Brit"? I know the word, as most of us do, meaning
"covenant". But is there such a name?
In the Scandinavian countries Brit or Britt is a very common name, but
nothing Jewish about it.

gogl'-mogol' as geneaology #ukraine

Alan Shuchat <ashuchat@...>
 

I'm one of the many who were given goggle-moggle as kids. We
experienced it in a Jewish context, but it's apparently more general
than that. My Russian dictionary lists "gogl'-mogol'" as "beaten-up
egg and sugar." In fact, when my Russian cousins and other immigrants
arrived here over the course of the past 20 years, I was surprised to
see how many family habits came >from a more general Russian (or at
least Russian-Jewish) culture.
