Csernia or Cherna was my mother's Hebrew name. I found it on her ketuba.

I have relatives with the names of Louis and Bryna, but on the ship manifests for their immigration to the US from Russia in the 1800's and early 1900's, they appear as Leiser/Leizer and Breine (male and female, respectively).

I can't speak to the origin of Cerne.
