From Rachel and David to Maya and Ezra: Trends in American Jewish Personal Names
Hosted By: HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project
This panel explores the results of a new study of American Jewish Personal Names, based on a survey with over 11,000 responses. Which names do Jews and non-Jews associate most with Jews? How do Jews of different ages, ancestries, and religious orientations vary in the names they select for their children and their pets? How have American Jews’ names changed over time? Who names their children after living relatives, and who has a “Starbucks name”? At this event, the researchers present their findings, followed by commentary from experts on names and American Jewish culture.
