I am forwarding the following query. Please respond to her directly.

Ernest Holzmann

Would anybody know what the Yiddish or Jewish original name for Sophie be?

My step-grandmother's name was Sophie and her Yiddish name was Sprintzel. I
do know that when people Americanized their names, they usually took names
that began with the same letters as their Yiddish names.
