Female name - Nutta ? #galicia


Fran Segall <Fran_Segall@...>
 

My g-father's sister's tombstone reads Chai-yud-hay Nun-yud-tov-hay bat
....... First name is obviously Chaya. Any ideas on the "middle name"?
I've heard of the name Nuta or Nutta, but only for a male (often winds up as
something like Nathan).

Any thoughts on what this female Yiddish/Hebrew name could be, or what it
might have become in English?

Thanks for your help - again!

Fran

Dear Fran Segall et al:

Here are two possibilities >from Anita Diamant's "The New Jewish
Baby Book":

= Nadya: >from "dowry"; she says it's common in Israel
= Netta/Netia: meaning "a plant".

There is a female Nuta in my family tree, but, as an additional guess,
could the name have been Nita?

Fran,
I recently researched for a friend, Nutta as a surname.

It might well be the same as my grandmother's name, Nessie (or Nessa)
-- which was changed to Genessa in Russian and Nettie in English. I
don't have the Hebrew/Yiddish spelling available at the moment.
