Re: Chiena? #names


My greatgrandmother was Chiena  (Herschman). She lived in Vitebsk, then Lithuaina and afterwards in Beliki Luki, now Russia. We are descendents of the Vilna Gaon. I was told that this name is common in his family. Evidently it was the name of one of his daughters. My father said it was derived from the name Chana.
