Re: Given Names Miriam and Malke #galicia

Are any of you able to tell me if there is a relationship between
the female given names Miriam and Malke?
In my experience, when transferring >from Europe to English speaking
countries, any given name with the same initial letter is fair game.
That's not to say that they always kept the same first letter -- to take
just one example, many women named Shaina became Jenny -- but I sure
wouldn't rule out Molly, Mary, Martha or Miriam as corresponding to
Malke.
