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

My wife's great grandmother who came from Rajgrod, Poland was called Khuna / Kune - that is her name on both Polish documents and English records

The Jewish Given Names Database suggests a Germn origin for the nameĀ The Polish Given Names Database (

This is surprising perhaps, but I have also throught that it may be a corruption of Chanah (Hannah)
