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

My grandfather Mordechai, called Mordchi on a passenger list, was known as Max in the USA.  My brother, named for him, is Mark.  As a result, I would think Marx would be another possible English-sounding name, especially for someone coming from a German-speaking area.
