German SIG #Germany The given name "Auz" ?? #germany

I am trying to trace a family called KRIEGER. The furthest back is a man who
emigrated to the US in 1882 and subsequently brought his family over to
Pittsburgh in 1887. They appear in a Census but his forename is hard to
read. The best guess I have made is "Auz". Has anyone come across this name?

He and his wife Annie were described as coming >from "Poland" but I assume >from the
surname they were probably German-speaking. He was born in 1835 and Annie in 1842.
