My grandfather was named [name]Allen[/name]. His name back in Poland’s shtetel and then ghetto was Alte Fishel, which literally translated to Old [name]Fish[/name], because he was the last of 9 born and it was the town joke or something. I am not a fan of the name [name]Allen[/name] however, but wanted to honor him with a similar name if we have a boy. My other grandfather was [name]Isadore[/name], and [name]Ezra[/name] in Hebrew, but we called him [name]Izzy[/name].
Any ideas for naming after these names?
I like [name]Ezra[/name], but it was vetoed by my husband.
The only “A” names I like are [name]Alex[/name] and [name]Adam[/name] and those are my brother and brother-in-law’s names! I’d prefer to name our child after my grandfather [name]Allen[/name] because he was much more of an influential presence in my life.
