would presume that "Idevna" is a patronymic form giving her father's name.
But what kind of first name is "Id"? It sounds more Freudian than Jewish.
from the name Idl (Ydl) like in "Idl met a fiddle".
My uncle name was Idl, and my cousins were identify by their patronym
as "Idovich", not Idlovich.
Same goes with the female.
