Then why not Hentche? What's the origin? Henche says it has something to do with a grandmother's name.

I pronounce it the second way.  I'm named after my elter bubbeh, who made the best babka ever.  Her name was henche, but she was called bubkes (combination of bubbe and babka).  I don't know how she pronounced it.

Some of my cousins tried to call me bubkes.  They now have flat crooked noses.

You, you.....you're good.
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

All the Henches I know ( all of whom are female) pronounce it הענטשע.   'ch'  as in Charles.

Oooooh. When you write it as הענטשע it all makes sense.

You've gotta get out more.  You're surrounded by Mushka, Shterna, and the occational  Maryasha.
Others have Genendel, Shpritza, and Yachet.  Polish, rather than Russian origin.

Now it makes sense. Yes, it's a Polish girls name. It's like Henya.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

The Lubavitcher names you listed are in Hebrew, so they don't sound strange.  Yiddish names are not found across all of Judaism, and even those groups who use them don't necessarily use the same ones as each other.


I heard something on the origin of Yiddish names that may not be true, but is interesting.
Back in the old country, many Jews lived far from other Jews and rarely were able to join in a minyan.  When a boy was born, the father made arrangements for a bris as soon as possible - maybe even as early as the 8th day.  And then they called their baby boy by his name.  When a baby girl was born, he didn't have to  to all that work.  When he next participated in a minyan - perhaps at the next Yom Kippur - he would get an aliya and officially name his daughter.      But what to call the little zeiskeit in the meantime?  Why Zissel, of course. Or Sheina, or Bluma, or Feiga, or Eidel etc.  Some Yiddish names and their meaning are here.  There are far fewer male Yiddish names than female.
