I was explaining Jewish naming conventions to one of my coworkers, and going through examples, I was actually able to use each of my family members to make a different point. My Jewish name comes from my great-grandfather, my brother’s Jewish name is a direct Hebrew translation of his English one, and my dad’s Jewish name is a similar sounding one to his English name. It’ll be interesting to see how it pans out for everyone else. Obviously Israelis will probably not find this super relevant.
How does your Jewish name relate to your legal name?
