What is the source of my father's Hebrew name? It is כלאוונא

I am going getting a GET from my wife and the Rabbi asked for my father's Hebrew name. I told him it was כלאוונא, the same as my great-grandfather. The rabbi said he had never heard of the name. After some research, we found it mentioned in the Talmud without any explanation we could understand. Can you shed any light on this? Thanks.
