Genealogy: What’s In A Name? The Answer.

Standard

America’s southern president, Bill Clinton has a nickname, “Bubba”. It’s a very popular southern pet name. I have a cousin in Louisiana we call “Bubbee”. The word “Bubbee” is Yiddish, pronounced BUB-ee and is a “friendly term for anybody you like”. Could this nickname have been a way for Southern Jews to retain Jewish identity? And similarly, South African Blacks known as Lemba have an oral history that they descend from the ancient Hebrews. They insist that they are Jewish. The elder clan member is called “Buba” which some say is the ancient name of the tribe’s founder and that it means “from Judah”. Those who have seen the Lemba say their skin color and facial structures are different from other Africans.
