    Jews commonly took up nature derived names or names that evoked beautiful settings. This was probably to contradict the crowded dirty conditions of the inner city ghettos where the streets were narrow and made for dismal conditions. Many of their names were already in circulation amongst gentiles but may not have been common. I don't think Bach's Goldberg Variations has any jewish conotation. Also I think the German -berg and -burg translate into the English -berry and -bury suffix's. The letter G at the end of german words usually translates into Y in the English.

    Much like other languages...sometmes there is no Y in other Euro languages. G in Greek and Armenian is also silent Y...Giorgios (Yorgos), Govis (Yovis), in Armenian the letter Y is written as a J, much like in Serbian, J also = Y. Either way, my comment remains, I've only seen Jews with the suffic BERG...and never BURG (just personal exp).
