Researching CHAMUDIS/CHAMUDES/HAMUDIS/HAMUDES. #bessarabia

My maternal grandfather was one of 12 siblings. He was born in Tatarbunar, Bessarabia in 1885.  His parents and 10 children migrated to Argentina in the early 1900's.
One brother (Simon) stayed in Russia and one (Boris) came to the US.
From Argentina my grandfather (Felipe) and a brother (Israel) moved to Chile when my mother and I were born.

Besides genealogy information, I'd like to find out the origin of the name CHAMUDIS (and its variations).  I've read that could be derived from "hamud" in Hebrew and I know what it means.
