Perhaps her Hebrew name was Haya or Hava which in Russia often
became Clara. In America Hava could be Evelyn.

My mother always thought that her mother's name was Miriam Clara
because relatives called her Clara. Imagine her surprise when she
found out that her name was Miriam Evelyn. We still don't know why
she was called Clara.
