I am looking for a translation for my fatherís name, Raymond. I have found a number of different possibilities; however, the most common found are Avigdor, Gonen and Magen. Can you please tell me which of these is the most accurate, or if you know of one that I havenít mentioned?

Thank you very much for your help, it is much appreciated.

Since Raymond is a modern name, it is very likely that his Hebrew name held no relationship to it at all. You might try to determine the Hebrew name of the person who he was named for. Sorry that I can't be of more help.
