Given name ending in "owna" #lithuania

Hello !

I have a record for a female ancestor named Eiga Mendelowna MARNAK. I am
unfamiliar with the female given name "Mendelowna," and wonder if in
this case it might mean her father's name was Mendel.

Thanks very much,
Julie Weisman

MODERATOR'S NOTE: You are correct that "owna" means daughter
of the name immediately preceding it, i.e. Mendel.
