Hi - Etka is the diminutive form of Eta. According to the JewishGen
Given Names Database, there is no Hebrew equivalent for Eta: it is
from the Yiddish / German word for "noble". (It was not crucial that a
woman have a Hebrew name.)

I'm guessing that Mortek (which I haven't ever seen before) is a
variant of Mortke. Mortke is a diminutive form of the Hebrew name
Mordekhai.

What are the Hebrew equivalents of the Yiddish names Mortek and Etka?
