SPAIN: Muslim Spain

Jonathan Huyck said "Bat Ye'or [the author of books denouncing the idea of peaceful Islam] is not a Coptic name, so that would lead me to think she may be Jewish. I'd be interested to find out". Cameron Sawyer says "I knew a Christian Iraqi whose given name was Bat". RH: Since she was born in Egypt, it may just be an Arab name. She may of course still be Jewish, but I have no proof of that. Can Ed Jajko answer this question?
