Uman #ukraine

My great-grandparents, Isaac and Libby WEXELMAN, moved to Montreal in
1904 >from the Ukraine. On Isaac's Canadian naturalization papers, it
says that he is >from "Oman Province of Keiff, Russia" which I assume
means Uman.

Recently, I got a copy of the 1940 Dominion of
Canada National Registration record for Libby, and for place it lists
"Omaname" which is pretty similar to Uman. My questions is whether
anyone has an idea as to why they would have tacked on the suffix "ame".

Thanks,
