Some characteristic forenames: Jewish Hershel, Emanuel, Erez, Yehuda, Ayal, Danit, Doron, Dov, Elad, Elihu, Eran, Haim.

Jewish (Ashkenazic): altered form of Horn 5, originating under Russian influence, since Russian has no h and alters it to g in borrowed words and names. In Israel, the name has been reinterpreted by folk etymology as being from Hebrew goren ‘threshing floor’, which is in fact etymologically and semantically unrelated.
