Polish-Russian Names #general

Could a name starting with R like Reisa, Ruchel, Riva or could
be any other Hebrew name.

.... Part of my family was also >from Bialystok and an aunt who
died in the Holocaust was always known to me as "Aunt Rose."
I have not been successful in finding her birth certificate
although I have obtained them for all her siblings.

Both my mother and my uncle used "American" names here in the U.S.
different >from their birth names and I assume the same is true of my
aunt who remained in Europe.

So, what I would like to know is what was most likely her "real" name
in Poland?

Dear Sandra,

the Polish version for Rose is Roza (Ro'za, I am not sure if you can
see the CE characters) and is pronounced Roozha.

My grandfather's sister-in-law was also Roza.

My Great Grand Parents and my grand parents were >from Bialystok
and my grandmother's name was Fanja or Fania too.

It seems to be a common name.

Several days ago I posed a query about Russian-Polish names.
I was looking for the most probable religious *and* secular
names for the following:

All were born in Bialystock region:
... female: called Fania in the US

....Most correspondents suggested Feige for Fania, and I think
it most likely.
