you are partially right
Hersh is a translation of Tzvi, mostly people who are called hersh, the real name is Tzvi, and only called hersh, i know a few that are called Tzvi hersh both at a time but also rare, but very rarely (or if at all) will someone be called hersh alone,

Hertz ( even if the origin might come from hersh, which i dont know) i have never heard any one be called Tzvi Hertz, we hear alot Naftula hertz.
Zev and wolf, yes wolf is a translation of zev, we see some called zev wolf, rarely wolf as self
