What's in a Name - Ziv Ha Shemos
Laws & Customs Regarding the Naming of Children and Related Topics
by Rabbi Y. Z. Wilhelm
Hebrew - English Version

Among the Jewish life cycle events, naming a child is uniquely important, for throughout his life, his Jewish name defines his identity at every waking and sleeping moment. It is by his Jewish name that a person is remembered and memorialized after a hundred and twenty years. First published as Ziv HaShemos in 1688.

Covering the traditional Jewish approach to choosing of a name and the ceremonies surrounding the giving of that name, this volume deals with the details, known and less known, unusual situations such as adoption and non-Jewish fathers, and what to do when there is a disagreement over the choice of a name. The format is accessible to the layman, also having extensive technical footnotes and references.(124 Pages)
