Yiddel is a Yiddish name, which means “little Jew”. This is a name that is often used as a term of endearment for young Jewish boys. While it has a similar meaning to the Hebrew name Yisrael (which means “one who struggles with God”), Yiddel is often seen as a more informal and affectionate name. Many Jewish families use this name as a nickname for their sons, sometimes even after they grow up.
