What is the proper name of the month Cheshvan or Mar cheshvan in regards to shtaros and when we bless the new moon?
Thank you


For purposes of shtaros, and in particular for gittin, the month is written Marchesvan (with one vav; Even Ha’ezer 126).

Marcheshvan is also used for blessing the new month on Shabbos Mevarchim.

For general purposes of reference, the shortened Cheshvan is often used.
