First name of Zelik #names


GEORGE MASON
 

On my father's family tree, on a Lithuanian Family List from the 1870's, I find a person's grandfather identified as "Zelik" (born late 1700's to early 1800's) and, on another list from around the same time, he is identified by the Yiddish name for "Solomon". Why two different names, if this is the same person? Is it possible that this was a naming pair - Zelik Solomon or Solomon Zelik? What is the significance of the name "Zelik" and does it have any association with "Solomon"?
Thank You,
