I wasn't thinking about Nazi identity documents - just about Sarah and Abraham as the original Jewish couple!

By the way, a friend of mine, South African Jewish, says that she and her husband between them have three Sarah grandmothers; her husband's two grandfathers were both named Samuel.

I'm a baby boomer, I suppose - late 40s. My Jewish school friends got the usual 40s names, with a preference for Barbara and Judith, but also Sandra, Karen, Bernice, Myrna, Marsha, Mara, Serena, Ann and Hannah. Boys: Robert, David, Graham, Ian, Jeremy, Stephen, Denis, Julian, Michael.

Anecdotal evidence roolz, OK?
