My great-grandmother (from Podolia gubernia) went by Mollie on most official documents in the US. Within the family she was often referred to as Millie.

For a long time I thought this meant that her Hebrew name was probably Malka. But research has shown that her actual name was Mirel (aka Miriam or Masha).
