The name Orzsike

Amit N
 

Dear all,

Thanks to Judy Petersen, I have found a death notice for one of my
great-great-great grandfathers. One of the names signed as mourners is
Orzsike (the O has Umlaut).
What name this could refer to? It is obviously a nickname. Could it be Erzsebet?

Thank you very much,

names don't exist in a vacuum - where (and when) is the record from?

you could check the jewishgen given names database. and in case there's any question of transcription, you might also post it (as original as possible) on viewmate.

it sounds like "erzsike", which is a diminutive of erzsébet, if you're mistaking a more elaborate "e" for an "o" with an umlaut.

Hi!  I would guess that the name is a Lithuanian nickname for someone called Aaron (like my GGF Orchick).  See the Given Names Database, a Jewishgen infofile.  Select foreign country Lithuania and type of search, DM.  Does he have descendants called Chaim Aaron?

Good luck,
