Given Names Khaya-Mura & Ekha #general

Steve Orlen

Dear Cousins,

In Kiev, a relative of mine appears on a document as Khaya-Mura
(Russian spelling). I know the name Chaya, of course, but I couldn't
find Mura in the Given Names Database or in Beider's book. It sounds
like a variation on Miriam. Has anyone ever seen it before?

I also find an Elka, which I recognize. But another is named Ekha,
which I couldn't find. It might simply be a misspelling, but if
anyone recognizes it, please let me know.

Best, Steve Orlen
