The name Bashe or Basha #general


AIChernoff@...
 

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.
Thanks

In my experience I have found Bashe to be a women's name, although
I have come across a Bushy or Bushinkel as a nickname for a youngest
child who was a boy.

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?

Thanks,

Basha is, I believe, a Yiddish name. It is a female name and is considered
to be a derivative of the Hebrew name Basya or Batya.

I deleted the original posting on this subject.
But couldn't resist a response. I am named for a woman cousin named
Bashe or Basha. And I know the name to be that of other women as well.
Did not know that it could be a man's name as well. The things one learns
through this group!

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!

Dear Genners,
Amoz Chernoff asked:

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.

Actually it could also be the Polish diminutive name for Barbara,
in which case it is written Basia.
