Re: the name Minka?? #general

I found the name Minka in some papers. I believe it to be a sister to my
great-grandfather. I am assuming its a Yiddish name. Would anyone know
what its equivalent would be in Hebrew??

Minnie, Minna and Mindel were usually given to "match" the Hebrew name
Miriam. So I would expect the same to be true of Minka. As has been
discussed many times before, it is not usually a matter of "equivalence"
but simply of sound-matching.
