Does anyone know another form of this name that might relate to
Rebecca, Becky? In a message written by Eva Breitstein, Mechla is
addressed as her sister. Eva's sisters were Sura, Becky/Rebecca, Minnie
and Fanny.

I think this is the Hebrew name Machla (Numbers 26.33), which probably
became Minnie.
