comment Meaning of yiddish girls name “charnah”
@Menachem There were/are several spellings and pronunciations of this name. According to the Handbook of Ashkenazic Given Names, it can be טשארנה or you can replace the א with ע or nothing, and you can replace the ה with א ,ע, or י.

comment Meaning of yiddish girls name “charnah”
The nice thing about this is that outside of Czech-speaking areas, it was really a thoroughly Jewish name. No one was named Czarna in Poland but the Jews.

comment Elisha, the children, and the bears: what is really going on here?
Unsourced, and I haven't looked up the sources in this question, but it seems to me that Rashi is saying na'arim translates not to boys but to [adult] people without mitzvot.
