Origin, meaning and variations of the woman's name FINKEL #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary

It looks like a female ancestor of mine may have been named FINKEL. I would like
to know more about the origin, meaning, and variations of this name.

I have tried searching on JewishGen for this information, but have not
found anything, which may be my shortcoming. I would appreciate any
ideas you might have about this name and/or suggestions of other resources.
Many thanks.
