What was Avraham Avinu's mother's name?

Our shul received a paper with questions on Simhat Torah, with this question being one of the harder ones. Is there a midrash on her name?

Her name was אמתלאי בת כרנבו.

ואמר רב חנן בר רבא אמר רב אמיה דאברהם אמתלאי בת כרנבו אמיה דהמן אמתלאי בת עורבתי וסימניך טמא טמא טהור טהור

Bava Basra 91a

(I knew it existed, but will admit to having resorted to Google to find it fast.)
