I have a cousin named Zundel and I was wondering about the source of this name. Is it related to a Yiddish word? Does it come from a Hebrew word? Or is its source a secular name or word?

Zondal's origin, as well as its use, is in the Yiddish language. The meaning of the name is 'little son'. The source of this name is Zundele.
