Question
What is the name Brett in Hebrew or Yiddish
Answer
ב"ה Shalom In order to give a true and acuurate answer, Brett's parents should be asked what Hebrew name was given at Brit after childbirth and if that is not possible, the Jewish marriage contract the Ketubba) of Brett should be looked at. Other options are looking into the background of the person Brett was named after even if it means locating a tombstone. The English name Brett doesn't automatically come from a single name Hebrew or Yiddish. If you are just asking me to guess for whatever purpose, since people usually chose a name similar in sound or the letters of the Hebrew or Yiddish name, I would suggest any of the following possibilities if the person is of east European descent: Baruch in Hebrew and in Yiddish Ber or Beresh. All the best of health
