Alright. Thanks for the tip.

2018-08-27 22:09:02 UTC  

My aunt - rest her soul - was a Berg by marriage only.

2018-08-27 22:09:22 UTC  

Jews took common names of host populations. Examples of this practice reach past even roman times

2018-08-27 22:09:32 UTC  

Yep

2018-08-27 22:09:34 UTC  

"for business" they'll say

2018-08-27 22:09:48 UTC  

"berg" is German for mountain.

2018-08-27 22:10:10 UTC  

@Deleted User So Iceberg means "ice mountain"?

2018-08-27 22:10:25 UTC  

Yes.

2018-08-27 22:10:33 UTC  

It's funny to think about it, a *real* jewish name. Like Schlomo 😅

2018-08-27 22:10:38 UTC  

not appropriated

2018-08-27 22:10:40 UTC  

Steinberg means stone mountain.

2018-08-27 22:10:44 UTC  

Nice.

2018-08-27 22:11:02 UTC  

That's an amazing name.

2018-08-27 22:11:17 UTC  

But I admit, I am highly sceptical of anyone with a name like that.

2018-08-27 22:11:31 UTC  

man of Hoff

2018-08-27 22:11:32 UTC  

duh

2018-08-27 22:11:34 UTC  

We're not entirely sure

2018-08-27 22:11:43 UTC  

What does the name Luckenbach mean?

2018-08-27 22:12:01 UTC  

Even though my last name is pretty common knowledge I deleted your comment.

2018-08-27 22:12:10 UTC  

And my previous one.

2018-08-27 22:12:30 UTC  

Fair enough

2018-08-27 22:12:48 UTC  

My name is as far as I've seen, quite unique

2018-08-27 22:13:33 UTC  

@Deleted User It's better to protect our identities.

2018-08-27 22:13:57 UTC  

It's also important to note that most 'berg's from Sweden aren't Jewish at all.

2018-08-27 22:14:06 UTC  

I'm daily doxed, but regular membership absolutely should.

2018-08-27 22:15:02 UTC  

@Deleted User Does Steiner mean "stoner"? 😉

2018-08-27 22:15:04 UTC

We suspect it's some play on the farrier profession. One who fits the hooves of horses.

2018-08-27 22:15:32 UTC  

It could also mean "man of Town"

2018-08-27 22:15:40 UTC  

Townsman.

2018-08-27 22:15:41 UTC  

ah

2018-08-27 22:15:44 UTC  

Mines an old British surname that's odd and hard to guess

2018-08-27 22:16:02 UTC  

@Deleted User Perfidious?

2018-08-27 22:16:06 UTC  

😉

2018-08-27 22:16:09 UTC  

Damn you!

2018-08-27 22:16:15 UTC  

knew it

2018-08-27 22:19:17 UTC  

@Sorohan - IL not sure. Doesn't really resemble any German words.

2018-08-27 22:19:37 UTC  

I guess bach is like a river though, but smaller.

2018-08-27 22:19:44 UTC  

A stream?

2018-08-27 22:29:08 UTC  

A name like Stone Mountain is very typically J

2018-08-27 22:29:30 UTC  

Kind of like a fake name
