A Hebrew name is to come before the English name

* This article is an excerpt from the above Sefer

Hebrew name versus name in other languages:[1]

Whenever a child will be given two names with one of the names being a non-Hebrew language name, then the custom is to precede the Hebrew name and have the non-Hebrew name follow it as the second name of the child.


[1] Toras Menachem 5747 3:257 that so is the Jewish custom; Sefer Hasichos 5750:296; Shevach Habris 20:15; Shulchan Menachem
