English translation:Trefilov / Трефилов
Explanation:
Only a partial answer really Gad, this is the morphological breakdown as far as I can tell...
Треф.....seems to mean (in Russian) "clubs" as in the card suit, "King of Clubs etc"
ил.........not sure about this part
ов.........standard possessive suffix attached to most Russian surnames (ova is the feminine equivalent - Trefilova would be the feminine).

Can't shed any light on the Yiddish connection though, Sorryyyyy! :-)
(Have you considered posting this as Russian-English?)
