Mother in Law or the city of Hamma

It all depend on the context.

Also Hamma is the name of a city in Syria.

The previous reply is based on haMa (my emphasis), although I read it it as haMNa (again my emphasis). The way this word/name is written (hamna) does not make any sense to me -except, remotely, as "our worry -or anxiety, grief, sorrow, intention, purpose, design, interest, concern, attention, etc. In this case, it should hammuna or hammana.

I would be VERY curious to know what it is.
