Re: Help with the given name "Kuna" (from Belarus) #belarus #names

In my family from various towns in Galicia (now Western Ukraine), we have an ancestor with the name of Kuna. 

I find Phillip Trauring's 'blood and frogs' website a good source of information for first names.  Mr Trauring helpfully cites the source of his information.  So, courtesy of Mr Trauring's website we can see the following: 

אלקנה    Elkana        Elkan, Elkun, Kuna

i'm inclined to 'go with' this source for the name Kuna, unless of course A. N. Other has a different explanation.
