Does anyone know the meaning of this name?October 9, 2011 3:30 am at 3:30 am #1158646
Tzir is the bloody juice that comes out when you salt meat to kasher it.
Tzirel is that, with the “el” added on. Like Berel is Ber, or like Dovidel is Dovid.October 9, 2011 3:33 am at 3:33 am #1158647sam4321Participant
Probably a deviation of Sara,or princess.October 9, 2011 3:40 am at 3:40 am #1158648mommamia22Participant
I think Tzirel is a derivative of “Sarah”.
I also heard Tzirung is a precious gem.October 9, 2011 3:41 am at 3:41 am #1158649JotharMember
Google searches claim it somehow means princess, version of sarah, or a diminutive of zier meaning “jewel”. but when I typed Tzirel into google translate in yiddish, it turned it into “goat”.
So it can mean princess, jewel, or goat.October 9, 2011 3:44 am at 3:44 am #1158650yitayningwutParticipant
Popa – LOL. How do you know it’s not like Yisroel, Gavriel, Shmuel, or Michoel? Like some way of saying ??? ????? if you get my drift.October 9, 2011 3:56 am at 3:56 am #1158651.Sea Shells.Participant
papa Nope, I just received a text, Tzirel means precious Jewel!
Shame it’s not my name…
Tzir is different to Tzirel like avunti is I understand and A Vunt in Yiddish is something you crack your head against when people fail to chup!October 9, 2011 3:57 am at 3:57 am #1158652tzirelMember
thank you all for giving me a translation on my nmeOctober 9, 2011 4:04 am at 4:04 am #1158653RABBAIMParticipant
TziGel is a goat, not TziRel.. someone needs to teach Google some Yiddish!October 9, 2011 4:30 am at 4:30 am #1158654msseekerMember
Tzirel definitely means jewel. Jewelery in Yiddish is tzirung.October 9, 2011 4:53 am at 4:53 am #1158655akupermaParticipant
It is broadly derived from “Sarah” but probably influenced by the greek and slavic names that gave rise to the English name “Cyril” (which refers to royalty, which is also related to the origin of the name Sarah). It is similar to names such as Gittel or Fruma in that it is a Yiddish name rather than a Hebrew name.October 9, 2011 7:59 am at 7:59 am #1158656tzirelMember

Jewel is correct. Our shul gabbai asked me this months ago when I gave him a name for mi-sheberach and I looked into it.
It is Yiddish from old German. (OB Creedmoor – it is a name given in memory of a relative who was a…now how do you say jewel in modern German????)
