A German and Ashkenazic Jewish variant of "Koenig" or "King"; and in some cases, "Koenig" may well be a variant of "Kohein"-- given that the German "Koenig" means "King" and koheinim (priests) were the head caste in Ancient Israel.
Woody Allen was born as a "Koenig", but not a "Koenigstein".
Literally "son or descendant
of Levi", thus a Levi (or Levite). The name is Ashkenazic Jewish in origin.
Surprisingly, there was a noble family in Poland named Lewinski (according to Wikipedia). Monica Lewinsky (as far as I know or care to know... well, as far as I know; though now I'm interested in looking up whether Miss Lewinsky) is not related to the Jewish nobles in Poland.
An awful time in Jewish and general history, the Spanish Inquisition was commenced by Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand of Spain. Jews were systematically and specifically persecuted, forced either to convert to Roman Catholicism or be killed by the monarchy.
The Spanish Inquisition may have affected Christopher Columbus to be quiet about his own Jewish heritage.
Yiddish equivalent to German "Frau"- "woman".
The only Pro-Israel candidate (as seen at the Ames, Iowa GOP Debate) in the 2012 GOP Presidential Race, Former Governor Tim Pawlenty (originally pronounced "Pav-lent-y") (R-MN) may even be a Cohen (given that, according to Wargs.com, one of his great-grandmothers was born as Julia Koenig; and in some cases, "Koenig" may well be a variant of "Kohein"-- given that the German "Koenig" means "King" and koheinim (priests) were the head caste in Ancient Israel).
In stark constrast to the other GOP Candidates in Ames, Iowa; Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty not only mentioned Israel directly (as did Texas Representative Ron Paul), but (unlike Ron Paul) voiced support for Israel.

Kosher is a pain to keep up with

@roark100 So are hospital bills for Chron's, Cholitis, etc.. Meanwhile, I indulge ocassionally (i.e., the infamous Farrell-DeBoy crap soup, guaranteed to scratch your intestines out if you eat too much; and that's why I have only one bowl at the family reunions). But actually, kosher is relatively easy-- simple rule of thumb: if you wouldn't eat it, it's probably not kosher. "If you wouldn't eat it" includes dogs, cats, shellfish (Look up what they filter.), horses, Spam, bats, & other non food.
