This slide summarizes the four classifications of given name adaptations.

  1. Language-equivalent names (e.g. Avrom to Abraham)
  2. Calques -- Names with the same underlying meanings (e.g. Bluma to Flora)
  3. Phonetic Similarity -- Usually just same initial letter
  4. No correlation between the old and new names
