Here we see some of the other variant names used on documents referring to "Max Goldman":
9-Dec-1881 His marriage registration Lejbka Gerszkovich Dembor Russian 1-Jan-1905 Son Harry's Report Card Maks Goldman Yiddish 5-Nov-1926 His death certificate Max Goldman English 5-Nov-1927 His tombstone Mordechai Yehuda ben Tzvi Hebrew 16-Aug-1934 Grandson, Morton Leon Mordechai Leib "Hebrew" 6-May-1957 Son, Harry's Tombstone Mordechai Areyeh Hebrew
All these variants can be explained using the principles just described in this lecture. Max, whose Hebrew name was "Mordechai Leib", had a grandson named after him after his death, named "Morton Leon" (given names fashionable in America in 1934, using the initial letters of the Hebrew name). On Max's son Harry's tombstone, the Hebrew inscription is "Tzvi ben Mordechai Areyeh". Max is referred to as "Mordechai Aryeh" -- "Areyeh" is the Hebrew calque of the Yiddish name "Leib" (both mean "lion").
