Ukraine SIG #Ukraine RE: given name translation #ukraine

"religious" would be the closest translation. A word-for-word translation
is "one who prays a lot"

I unfortunately only have on name in this family line - Rebecca
BOGOMOLNY. Rebecca never left the Ukraine, except to visit her sons in
the United States. They referred to her as Rebecca, but would this be
an Americanized version of her name?

The name is clearly Slavic, meaning 'praying to God', or perhaps
'religious' or 'believiing'.
