    Any history?

    I love the name, Selig. Just wondering whats the history on it? I know it's German and Zelig is the Yiddish form.

    Other front runners for us: Noam and Asher.

    Well it's the German word for "blessed". It's not a name in Germany, since word names are very uncommon and often not even allowed here, I mean as first names. Selig probably is used as a surname. The history? Well since it's not really a name but a word, I guess that's the history.

    The pronunciation is something between "SEH-lig" and "SEH-lich" (German "ch", a sound that you don't have and I have no idea how to describe"

    I pronounce it Seh-lig and Zelig is Zeh-lig.. I have been finding its used for Jewish families more than German. So it must be Hebrew?
