Mine is Teelah. But we always called them our Hebrew names, not Jewish names.

Shippy's avatar

I think maybe though, it’s Shitzsky…

Rowena Schwartz. I’d be famous for my cheese filled latkes.

I guess it should be Wundele, not Wundalla. Shows you how Jewish I am.

I looked up Jewish names and I like ’‘Giza’’. Lol. But I don’t know about Jewish names…you mean just like Hebrew names? Or do Jews have titles or modified names or what?

@zenvelo There is a GladysMensch on fluther, lol.

zensky's avatar

@wundayatta There are many pronunciations – Lithuainian, Russian, Polish etcetera. We are merely writing it phonetically anyway – I have definitely heard Bubbala, Bubele, Bobele, Bobenyu, etc.

Wundalla is fine.

wundayatta's avatar

Wundele looks better to me. More Yiddish.

I actually always thought it was Esther – who was the King of Persia’s Jewish wife.

Mine is Yoel, which combines the covenant name of God, YHWH (or Yahweh), and el (god), and has been translated as “one to whom YHWH is God,” that is, a worshipper of YHWH. Bow down, all ye who read this.
