I have all those people in my Fellman file, but we do not know there Hebrew/Yiddish names!

I meant, do you have a clear example of someone named after a living person?

It strikes me that Augusta may have been an anglicised form of Gesa-Eida. That would indicate that May and Bessie named daughters after their deceased mother.

I looked into the sequence of naming for my great-grandfather and his 8 siblings. A clear pattern can be seen. I'll draw up a table or something similar to explain it to you.

Coming full circle
Had a laugh today with some amusing spellings .

On Samuel Lazurus Fellman American naturalisation document he is named as Samuel Loser Fellman

His daughter Gertrude who may have been baptised in Manchester as Golde
Was apparently known as Goldie in later years...unfortunately on her husbands naturalisation document she is named Oldie
