Given name Anuta from Bessarabia #bessarabia

Alberto Guido Chester

I knew my great grandaunt as AÑUTA (the letter Ñ in Spanish sound like AG in Italian) which is certainly a nickname.
She was born aprox 1900 in Bender, Bessarabia.
I have looked at the Jewishgen Given name database with no success.
Her siblings were named Pauline, David, Adolf, etc, that is "common" Argentinian names.
Can someone suggest the civil name for Añuta ?
Thanks in advance

I have an Anuta related distantly by marriage from Panevezys, Lithuania. I never knew if this was her original name, or her name after immigrating to South Africa. That’s the only time I’ve ever heard that name. 
On, I found Anuța in Romanian to be a diminutive for Ana. 


Hi Alberto,

Anyuta is a russian hypocoristic form of Anna.

Kinna Hura as “God Willing” still retains some of its original sentiment, though seems to have travelled a bit. The phrase 'kayn ayin horeh' (קײן עין־הרע) is a mixed Yiddish/Hebrew phrase meaning ‘no/without the evil eye’. It is used superstitiously to avoid the bad effects of the evil eye if you chance across good fortune (a bit like the Christian ‘knock on wood’). In modern Hebrew use it has become ‘Bli Ayin Ha’ra’ (בלי עין הרע).

Anuta (pronounced Anutza in Romanian) is the diminutive for the Romanian name Ana or the Hebrew equivalent Chanah / Hanah.
