This question already has an answer here:

Besides a couple names (ex: Akiva, Ashi) you don't really see many people over the course of history who have names that originated from the Talmud- ie "Huna", "Abaye", "Zevid", "Puppa" etc.

Why do you think think this? (other than someone maybe not liking these names for their child) These members of Chazal are literally gedolim she'b'gdolim!

  • @DoubleAA haha really? Can you maybe add some additional tags to the original question so it might be easier to find? – alicht Feb 21 at 18:50

  • There's a Hassidic sect called "Puppa". I see their school buses in my neighborhood frequently. Maybe the rebbe or the town was named after Puppa. – DanF Feb 21 at 19:15
  • @DanF, the Hassidic sect is named (as they all are) after a city. In this case the Hungarian city of Pápa, with a Yiddish pronunciation. – Yishai Feb 21 at 19:51
