from Attilla, which wasn't there, all the boys' names I found ending in "a"
came from the Hebrew: Amasa, Asa, Elijah, Elisha, Ira, Joshua, Josiah,
Zachariah and Zedekiah -- I'm counting "ah" as "a-really", but I don't
think that's cheating *too* much.)

I can think of several Russian men's names that end in "a", like Mischa,
Illya, Kolya, Sascha...
