9781886223431: Handbook of Ashkenazic Given Names and Their Variants (English and Yiddish Edition)

The most comprehensive compilation and analysis of Ashkenazic given names ever! This 728-page book identifies more than 15,000 given names derived from just 735 root names. Each root name includes a detailed description of the origin (etymology) of the name, a list of the variant and derivative names displayed in a scheme that reveals how the variants evolved, and references to the more than 15,000 variations of the root names throughout the centuries--some dating back to the 11th century. An index to the 15,000 variations guides you to the proper root name. The book may be helpful in breaking down the brick wall caused by Eastern European Jews not having surnames prior to the 19th century. Because this book identifies a given name in a specific place at a specific time it may provide a clue as to the early origin of ancestors.
