There's the Hebrew Yareakh, which became Jarach in Italy, taken there by a Jewish family from LUNEL in Southern France.
A German Jewish family named Mond took it's name from a house sign in the Frankfurt Ghetto. These signs were the source of a number of surnames, the best known being Rothschild, from the house of the red shield.
