In Russian this means that she is a daughter of Icko.
Her brother was Ickovich
the father, naturally, Icko Itsko, Itshak and any other spelling of this name of one of Our Fathers

I would be very surprised if this was actually a "given" name. Endlings with "owna" typically mean "daughter of" so one would assume that this woman/girl was the daughter of someone named Icek.

Correct spelling is Itzkovna. This is a patronym and it means that her father's name was Itzik or Isaak in Russian spelling. Incidentally, my mom was Rozalia Isaakovna.

"Correct spelling is Itzkovna" - In Russian, transliterated, maybe, but in Polish Ickowna was how it happened most of the time.

I have transcribed thousands of bmd for Polish towns, and Ickowna, and Ickowicz for men, were what occur.
