It’s very uncommon name for a Jewish man in a middle of 19-th century."
I have been transcribing some bmd from Poland in the mid-1800s, and Alexander is not uncommon among the men, even with the 'x', which Polish doesn't have, although some use 'ks' instead.
Abram, Icyk, Jakob, and Alexander are all 'Hebrew' names.
