Handbook of Ashkenazic Given Names and Their Variants

  • A subset of Dr. Beider's A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names: Their Origins, Structure, Pronunciation and Migrations,  this book provides the description of the origin and evolution of 735 root masculine and feminine Ashkenazic given names and  a tree-like structure of all the name variants which shows how they were derived from the root name. There is an index that identifies more than 15,000 given names derived from the 735 root names. The index is in three sections: names as they appeared in the Latin alphabet, names in the Cyrillic alphabet and those in the Hebrew alphabet.
