Help identifying a name

I’m doing some family genealogy research and found my great-grandparents’ marriage certificate, but can’t figure out what my great-grandmother’s middle name was. I’ll admit my cursive writing & reading skills aren’t the best, so that may be the issues, but I thought I’d ask here in case it is a name I’m not familiar with. [name_f]My[/name_f] current guesses are Rhurena or Rhuoena (or Florence?) :sweat_smile:

Looks like Rhuvena


I second Rhuvena!

[name_f]My[/name_f] best guess if Rhuvena, but that doesn’t seem likely for her generation. I suck at reading cursive too- xD

Definitely Rhuvena!

I also think Rhuvena!


I agree with the others, I’m pretty certain it’s Rhuvena.

Yup, definitely looks like Rhuvena to me.

[name_f]My[/name_f] guesses were the same as yours, but then I looked at the comments and I can definitely see Rhuvena so I guess I’ll go with that :rofl:

I think the original looks like an r but the other handwriting looks like a v

Rhuvena comes up as a name when googled, but Rhurena doesn’t. ironically, Rhurena resulted in a list of marriages from the 1900s coming up, but Rhurena wasn’t on the list :man_shrugging:


I write in cursive, I’d honestly say it looks like Rhuoena to me! Rhuoena and Rhuvena are both names as far as Google tells me lol


That’s what I thought, too.
