Concerning the given name Malca. Read with great interest the
discussion on this name. But for some reason, no one mentioned the
fact, that among Ashkenazi Jews, there are many, many girls/women
that carry a double barrel name and one of them being Malca. I am
talking about Esther Malca, many of the Esthers in my family
research database also carries the name of Malca.
All the best,
