Good question but I dont think you'll have one of the hyphen A-things without another letter connected to it.
So I see someone already asked about the ا at the end, but why is the second letter (و) translated to a single u and not uu? Wouldn't the Arabic word be جُبا in order for the first vowel to be singular?
Pretty much all proper names that end in an "a" sound are written with a final Alif instead of the fat7a (the little mark above the letter). The exception are feminine names of Arabic origin, which end with taa2 marbuu6a (the letter that looks like a small circle with two dots over it)
