My name is Deeb. My family is from Tartous, Syria.(actually a small village close by, Saya and grandparents from Mutten Arnouk and Bderiah. I am Eastern Antiochian Orthodox, as my family has been for hundreds of years.
I visited my family this fall in Syria. They do spell their name Dib, very common, but the name Deeb is just the english translation, not a changing of a name. As in america they may say David for Daoud. The name Deeb is a well respected name in Syria, the meaning is wolf or strong.
My grandparents came to the USA in 1906, I have alot of family history and pictures if anyone would be interested. I'm still searching for more relatives there, but since my visit it is now much easier. I have addresses and phone numbers of family there, if that would be any help to those searching for their roots. Please contact me with any bit of info you may have.
