i say stick to biblical names and you're in the clear across the board. everyone knows how to pronounce it. no one asks you 'oh what an unusual name. what does it mean??'
as someone with an unusual (in the secular world anyway) name, plus the fact that i work the phones in customer service, i can tell you i hate my name. i love it because it's unusual but i should have been given a biblical 'legal' name. that's why my daughter is Ann. that's whats on her insurance, credit cards  ::) etc

Wow. I am shocked. Didn't anybody else here think it was with a guttural chhhhh sound?
I do sometimes, I've always gone back and forth on which way it's pronounced...

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.
I really like that explanation but its probably from a cynical kofer.

I thought you were an Esty? Who doesn't know Queen Esther? (Or at least Aunt Esther?)

Is your Ann a Chanah?
