Thank you for your reply.
You said: "Please tell us how you found that out -- it is news to me! "

I went onto JewishGen' website, to Infofiles, to Names, to the Jewish Given
Names Database and did a European (Poland) to foreign (United Kingdom)
search for Harris there. I invite you to do the same. The name that popped
up was Harris.

I'm open to any further suggestions.

to many people who carried the Hebrew name Mordechai.
Please tell us how you found that out -- it is news to me! I have
zillions of Mordechais in my family, including one of my sons, but none of
them is a "Harris." They are all Marks -- except for a cousin named
Martin. (Mark is in fact a standard English soundalike for Mordechai) .
