I read your post on common Romanian names and wondered if you might be able to answer a question for me. Actually a couple of questions. I'm trying to gather information on my great grandparents, Vasa & Julia Becker. I know they were Romanian, not German (Becker). They changed their name when they came to the states in the ealry 1900's. Do you have any idea what Becker might have been in Romanian? Also, how rare is the name Vasa? Am I spelling it wrong? Is Vasa (Vah-sah) the same as Vasile? Or could it be a nickname for Vasile?
I have lost contact with the rest of the Becker family and with the name change, tracking their history is proving very difficuly. Any ideas you have on the names would be a great help which I will appreciate.
