Can anyone tell me whether 'Polya' is a female given name? I never heard
of it before. She was called 'Paula' when she came to the States. I would
have thought it was 'Pessia' or something like that, but my informant
tells me it was 'Polya'. She was born in Ekaterinslav on the Don River
in Ukraine in the early 20th Century.

Polya (Pola) is an nickname of the feminine Ukrainian name Polina (adopted
most probably >from Paulina).
There is no direct Bible relation to this name, nevertheless this is an
adopted Jewish name.
