I have just visited my great grandfather's grave and discovered his Hebrew name was Yehuda Leib, yet in England he was known as Louis Goodman. Is there a connection between the names? He moved to England from Kiev about 1895, would he have been known as Goodman (or equivalent) in Kiev? His fathers name was Meir what would be a likely English equivalent?
