My grandfather was Harris. His Jewish name was Mordka Zvi.

My grandfather's name was Harris taken >from Hirsch or Zvi meaning
'deer'. When looking for his naturalization I found two other
Harris Silversteins neither of whom was him.

Harris is certainly a common Jewish surname (e.g. Rolf
of that ilk), but haven't come across it as a given name
