Is the 2nd name on the headstone a given name or a family name? #poland #lithuania #names


I need help with the 2nd name on the gravestone of a cemetery in Suwalki, Poland, near the Lithuanian border. For years I assumed the name that follows Sarah in the gravestone, Tzerna,  was a 2nd given name. This was based on it meaning "black", in Russian. I now suspect that it may be the maiden name of Sarah. Can anybody shed some light on the issue? Tzerna may be Czerna or Czerny, as family name?
