In Judith Romney Wegner's reply to Steve Orlen, she writes the following:
""Eikha" is the first word of the Hebrew text of Lamentations
and means "How?" -- in context asking "How did the destruction of
the temple and the city of Jerusalem come to pass?" (Not exactly
the name one would expect parents to choose for their newborn
daughter!)"

I would like to point out that, as unusual as it might be, there is an Israeli
"short" movie about a young lass coping with the name her parents gave her
"Eikha"!!!
