of Bulgarian Jewish Surnames
by Mathilde A. Tagger
book identifies 882 surnames used by Jews in Bulgaria. Each surname
entry identifies its original language, a full reference for biblical,
Talmudic or Mishnaic names, and a full meaning and reference to a
medieval Spanish source when appropriate. Bulgaria was a melting pot
for Jews. The various origins of these surnames are the result of waves
of migration to Bulgaria from Bavaria, France, Hungary, Italy, Spain,
Russia and Ukraine. A brief overview of Bulgarian Jewish history
explains the origin and meaning of these names.
