"JOINE" as a first name #general


NANCY D PITTERS <NDPITTERS@...>
 

A great-uncle is listed in an 1897 Philadelphia Rosenbaum Bank Book ledger
and ticketed with the *first* name of "Joine". We were told by relatives
that his first name was 'Leon' when he entered this country >from the Ukraine
and have also found him in later years listed (in U.S. marriage, death &
census documents) as George Aron. We know why he took the name George Aron
in the U.S. .. but we are curious about the "Joine" first name. Is there a
translation for *Joine*? Is this a Jewish name? Any information is
appreciated.

Thank you, Nancy Pitters

==Joine [pron. Yoyne] could be the Yiddish pronounciation of Jonah (Yona in
Heb.)

I appreciate the helpful replies to my question regarding the name JOINE and
would like to share these with you (below).
==
Joine [pron. Yoyne] could be the Yiddish pronounciation of Jonah (Yona in
Heb.)
==
It is so simple the name JOINE. It is the nickname for the old Bible name
JONA. The Prophet JONA. So he have a old Jewish name.
==
Joine is one spelling for a Yiddish pronunciation of Yonah (Hebrew for
Jonah). In my family (>from the Kamenetz-Podolsk area of the Ukraine),
Yonah was definitely pronounced "Yoyneh" [but then "Afikomen" was
pronounced "afikoymen" as well).
==
"Joine" (pronounced "Yoina") is Yiddish for the Hebrew given name
"Jonah".
==
Joine or Jone is a diminutive to both Elhanan and Yohanan. It is the
equivalent to John. My great-great-grandfather was called by everybody Jone
der Hittelmacher and only by finding his grave and reading it I found he was
actually Elhanan son of Yehuda Leib Toker and Hittelmacher being his
profession (Hatmaker)

Many thanks.. Nancy Pitters

Very likely, your relative is "Yoineh" or Jonah. I have a Yoineh relative from
Ukraine!
