Hebrew Given name on headstone #translation


R Jaffer
 

I can read her father's name, but don't recognize this woman's Hebrew name, Sheyn...? Thank you for your help.


David Ellis
 

It's Shayntsche, a diminutive for Shayna.

Sheintche the daughter of Reb Reuven. It is Yiddish and probably the diminutive of Sheineh.  Sheine means beautiful in Yiddish and the Hebrew equivalent would be "Yaffa".


Max Heffler
 

Scheintsa

The name is obviously Yiddish and not Hebrew, what with the Ayin being a vowel.  The name would be Sheintshe.

It would clearly read Sheyntche but I've also never seen that name before. It sounds like a form of the name Sheyna meaning beauty.

Sheyntche - It means nice with a little suffix. Like Chanale for Chana.

She was Shejne, I suppose, but was remembered as Shejnche

One must remember most headstones were not composed by the deceased,
the person ordering the stone may not know the official name. Especially if
not family. But even family, my father's cousin told me her first name is not
Miriam, but that is the name everyone, including her children, new her as.

The name looks like Sheintza which, I suspect is a variation on Sheyna, Sheindel, etc. which means "pretty."
