I tend to disagree with the most learned scholar, JGFF editor, Alexander
Sharon concerning the given name Kisiel. stemming from the Hebrew name
Instead I tend to believe this name is the Yiddish version of the
Hebrew name Katriel which is composed of two Hebrew words Keter
(crown) and El (g-d, Hashem).
I also tend to believe that Sholem Aleichem used/incorporated this name
when he named a fictitious Shteitel of his, "kasrilevske."
All the best,

Name is an Yiddish variations of Hebrew Yekutiel (Yekuthiel) one of the
Moses names which means "God will feed".
MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen Given Names Database for Galicia, based on
legal documents compiled by rabbis for use in divorce proceedings, shows
only Yekutiel, and not Katriel, as a correlate for "Kisiel". See
