I would like to add my little grain of sand. For years I thought that my
GGGFather Chone was actually Elkhana or Elkhanan or Yokhanan. Then I
discovered the original Ktubba of my great-grandparents, in which the
groom's father name is written as Chona (Het Nun Aleph)

Dr Shimon Barak, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Although there is no question in my mind that Chuna is >from Elhanan,
I do know a fellow whose name is Chona (hey-nun-aleph).  It is his
given Hebrew name, not a nickname.
