DH's grandfather passed away this summer and we want to name the baby after him. His Hebrew name was Tuvia Zelig Asher.
The dilemma is what to call him. Zelig is out. It's an old Yiddish name. So it's between Tuvia and Asher. DH and I both are ok with those names, but DH prefers Tuvia while I like Asher better.
Here's the thing. We live in a Jewish community and our kids would go to Jewish schools where both names are known but uncommon.
I like that with Asher, at least people who aren't Jewish will be familiar with the name too. I know it's become pretty popular but it's not super popular in my community so it's unlikely that he'll be in class with other kids named Asher, or Tuvia for that matter.
