We have a Machla >from Wolynya in our family history.

I'd like to know if anyone knows by any chance what
the English as well as Hebrew equivalent name is for
the Russian, Yiddish or Russian-Yiddish female name:
Mekhliya/Mehliya or: Mekhliye (Mehliya or Mehliye)
with 'kh' or 'h' pronounced as the 'ch' in LoCH-Ness
