called "Mike" would tell you that their name is "Michael"; I'm called
"Stan", but that is only a familiar abbreviation of my actual name;
recent US President "Bill Clinton" was known to be a "William".
Personally, I'd think that a "Leibele", "Leibush", or perhaps "Leivik"
is actually an informal "Leib".
I know nothing about Halper. I suppose his name was either Hebrew
"Levi" or Yiddish "Leib", as has been discussed here.
