The Megillah says the name of Esther’s father (Abichayel) but did anyone ever see a source naming her mother?

This isn’t a Halacha question but it would be nice to have a source for her mom’s name

    Welcome to Mi Yodeya! Just because it's not a halachic question doesn't mean it's not a good question. – DonielF Mar 21 '19 at 20:13

    Thank you. Someone asked this question a year ago and nobody has an answer yet. Today someone from a different neighborhood came and asked the original asker if he might know who Esther’s mother was. When a question comes full circle it might be time to widen the pool. – Ariel A Mar 21 '19 at 20:41
  • Do you mean her mother who died in childbirth or Mordechai's wife who nursed her and raised her? etzion.org.il/en/… . I don't know the answer but there are 2 possible people to research. – rosends Mar 21 '19 at 21:56
  • I suppose that it would be better to find her biological mother but either name should satisfy the question. – Ariel A Mar 22 '19 at 1:36
  • Does anyone have a possible name? – Ariel A Mar 31 '19 at 12:47
