I recently obtained a photo of my uncle taken in Brest-Litovsk in 1927
which was presented to a friend and it contained an inscription. My uncle signed
his name Odeh instead of his real name Motel (Mordecai).

Would someone please tell me what is Odeh, a nickname, term of affection or
friendship, etc.?
