Roiza Baier married Shmuil Benin in Kovno in 1897.  Her father's name is listed as Orel Baier.
Does anyone know what Orel corresponds to in Yiddish or Hebrew? Could it connect to Aryeh or Aron?
 
thanks

Orel is Hebrew - it means "light of God" (Or'el).

I had never heard of the bane Orel before but
evidently it exists and is used for both men and women

see

It makes sense that "Or" = light and "El" = God
are combined into a single word and unsed as a name

Be safe and well
