Any Ashkenazi Jews familiar with the name "Meershe"?

Hi all! I just found my baby book, which has recorded the name of my great great grandparents. One of the names is written as “Meershe” but I have never heard this name before, nor can I find it anywhere really online. I wondered at first if it was a misspelling of Moishe, but Moishe doesn’t even really sound like Meershe. For context my family were Lithuanian/Ukrainian living near Kiev in the pale. I am almost certain Meershe is a man’s name, as it was written alongside Gitel. Anyone have any idea what this name could be? Or if there is a better place to post this question? Thanks everyone!
