A man whose wife had recently given birth to a daughter was called to an aliya this past week and surprised the whole shul with the long stream of names he bestowed upon his newly birthed daughter.
“Leah Hinda Tzirel Malka Etya Shenia Chana Chava Toiba,” the shocked gabbai announced after the man told him the name he came up with. The astonishingly long designation reportedly came about when the family could not narrow down the list of names they wanted to give the child.
The man later regretted the stunt and went to Bais Din to shorten the lengthy moniker. The dayanim paskened that he should go to shul this Shabbos and get a second aliya where he will give the girl a new, shorter, name.
