    How to Spot Jewish Surnames

    While this list may never be complete, it will cover most of the jewish names one is likely to encounter in everyday Western life. Unlike many gentile names, there is such a thing as a 'Jewish name.' Many Jewish persons can be recognized as being Jewish by their surname [last name], although not always--some Jews are adopted, or their forebears changed the family surname, or their surname simply does not appear Jewish.

    Here are the most common Jewish names likely to be encountered in the west:

    -Names ending in "-berg" (Goldberg, Weinberg, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-man" (Goldman, Lightman, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-stein" (Einstein, Perlstein, etc.)

    -Names that sound "precious" (Gold, Silver, Diamond, Ruby (Rubenstein) etc.)

    -Names ending in "-ler" (Adler, Midler, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-ner" (Asner, Lardner, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-lin" (Gitlin, Sheindlin, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-band" (Miliband, Goldband, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-witz" (Horowitz, Rabinowitz, etc.) or "- itz" (Kravitz, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-baum" (Teitelbaum, Metzenbaum, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-off" (Chartoff, Berkhoff, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-nik" (Resnik, Mitnik, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-thal" (Blumenthal, Rosenthal, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-ling" (Spelling, Sperling, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-sky" (Barshefsky, Linsky, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-farb" (Himmelfarb, Goldfarb, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-feld" (Seinfeld, Rosenfeld, etc.)

    -Names ending in "-stone" (Wellstone, Firestone, etc.)

    -Some, but certainly not all, names ending in "-son" (Abelson, Josephson, etc.)

    -Surnames that sound "Biblical," e.g., David, Joseph, Abram or Abraham, Moses, Benjamin, Isaac, etc.

    Some other names commonly used or adopted by jewish immigrants:

    -Miller -Davis -Ross -Lewis -Roth -Morris -Davidson -Green -Wolf -Newman -Gross -Harris -Sherman -Myers -Mayer -Jacobs -Aaron -Michael -Hirsch -Raphael -Tobias -Levy -Brand -Cohen -Kaplan -Weiss -Nathan -Leo -Levine -Simon -Levin -Samuel -Falk -Wise -Gottfried -Gottlieb -Mann -Mathis -May -Mars -Marx -Marks -Saul -Gould -Fink -Loeb -Loew -Rubin -Stern -Shapiro -Klein -Cohn -Singer -Frank -Schwartz -Rich -Kahn -Kramer

    Many of these names are infact Germanic and Slavic names, and are common among Germanics and Slavics in Europe. In the USA however, it seems that Jews have kept their German or Slavic names more than non-Jews have. It seems though that in recent years Jews have anglizied their names in the USA like non-Jews did before.

    The list is accurate, but we must be careful not to immediately categorise an individual as a Jew simply because their surname looks Jewish. I know plenty of Gentiles who possess the suffix -berg/-burg, -man/-mann, -stein, and many others listed in the chart you presented. Jumping to conclusions is neither fair to the victim, nor beneficial to our cause.

    I've known a few Isaacsons who were Swedish not Jewish. Donald Rumsfeld was not Jewish. And the Roosevelts (Rosenvelds) are not Jewish. I've heard that Poles use ski while Jews use sky. I don't think Newman is necessarily a Jewish surname. Isn't Mayer & Myers just a variation of Meyer which is one of the most common German surnames?

    Overall though I think the list is pretty indicated of Jewish surnames (in America), except the list at the bottom includes many names that born by more gentiles then Jews, e.g. Davis, Lewis, Harris, Miller, etc....

    Many European based jews, attempting to assimilate, take the names of cities or towns from which they came from.
    Here are a few examples:

    Berliner
    Rothenberg
    Bamberger
    Greenberg (Hesse)
    Hamburger
    Breslau
    Friedberg
    Bacharach
    Cassel
    Warburg
    Munsterburg
    Hildesheimer
    Dessauer
    Mannheim
    Hamelin
    Frankfurter
    Ulmer
    Braunschweiger
    Wien

    I would imagine that almost all German towns have at least one jew in the past or present who adopted their name.
    Study a map of Germany and Austria and you can learn to spot jews this way as well.

    Also, many jews took the last names of famous Germans.
    When I was younger I met one whose last name was 'Bach'.

    The actual ending or suffix of the names usually mean nothing, they are just suffixes common in the area. Just look at the NSDAP cabinet, we can find the suffixes -berg, -ler, -mann, -ner etc.

    "Müller" is the most common surname in Germany, for Germans.

    This is void in a quest to identify jews, since the oldest German surnames originate either from profession or from the place of origin.

    If someone has a surname like Schwarz or Weiß/Weiss, then it could be both a German person or a Jewish person, however, surnames like Rot, Grün, Blau, etc., are an indication that it's very likely for the person to be Jewish.
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.

    The list is BS. Most of the endings are common German pre- and suffixes.
