Hi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There have been extensive discussions/threads about the name *Mechla*
in the group. In addition to any replies to your question, I would
suggest you search the discussion group archives.
[MOD. NOTE: access to the Discussion Group Archives -
I remember it well, as my mother's name was Mechle, named for her
grandmother. One rabbi opined that it was not Michal (the Biblical
name) but rather a feminine version of the Yiddish male name *Mechel*,
