What's in a name?
Compiled by Melissa Kaplan
At various times, in various places, Jews were not allowed to have last names. When times changed and they were allowed to, they often took the names of their occupations, or physical or character traits, or the town or province they were born in or lived in. Other names have a more historical foundation, such as names reflecting cohen, israelite and levite ancestry. If you trace the origin of your family name, please consider sharing it here.
