DICTIONARY OF JEWISH NAMES AND THEIR HISTORY
by Benzion Kaganoff
There is a great deal more to a Jewish family name than meets the eye.
Etymology and philology reveal the word root or stem from which a name is
derived, and the apparant meaning. But onomastics, the study of names,
goes beyond origin and meaning - it takes into account
transmutations, usage, naming traditions, and all kinds of subtle nuances
that lie beneath the meaning and form of a personal or family name. This
book traces the historical processes that created the Jewish name forms
that appear today.
