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
