Is the "ch" in your Grandmother's name a "he" or a "kapf/qapf"?
tlhIngan "H" is like the first, whilst tlhIngan "q" is like the
second (intuitive, neh?).

Some possibilities:


Also, I'm not certain 'bout Yiddish, but I know
that Ashkanazi Jews had two pronounciations for "beth", the second
("bheth") was an aspirated sound, close to "ve/we". In that case, you
might use tlhIngan "v" in the first syllable.
