Is anyone familiar with the given name Haba-Menta? #names

I also agree that Haba refers to Chava. Menta could possibly have been a mis-transcription of Meyta or Yenta.

Haba-Menta Shlemova Tsoglin was my great aunt who lived in Semenovka, Chernigov guberniya, now Ukraine. Is anyone familiar with this name?
