Re: Is the first name Marx a shortened version of Mordecai #names

Marx and Markus (which are actually 2 versions of the same thing) are often Mordechai's names. Marx doesn't work for Polish, as they have the language has no 'x' (except sometimes in Alexander in the records). Poles would use Marks or Markus.
