I know of a male Chuna (Chuna Shukhat, a Jewish boy in Ukraine who died in
WWII). There was also a male Chone (Chone Shmeruk, a professor in Warsaw
who died in 1997).

I know of several male Chune's. Beider's book lists Chuna/Chune
as derived >from Elkhonen (Hebrew for G-d is gracious).

So the answer seems to be "either".

Well, my Mom is Chune - Chone. I was not aware of the similar male name.
Never late to learn :-)

Although there is no question in my mind that Chuna is >from Elhanan,
I do know a fellow whose name is Chona (hey-nun-aleph). It is his
given Hebrew name, not a nickname.

I would like to add my little grain of sand. For years I thought that my
GGGFather Chone was actually Elkhana or Elkhanan or Yokhanan. Then I
discovered the original Ktubba of my great-grandparents, in which the
groom's father name is written as Chona (Het Nun Aleph)

Chuna is generally a nickname for Elchanan.
