Another idea : Sana Nacha as male for Nosn - Nachman . Sana nickname for Nosn/Nathan . Nacha nickname for Nachman / Nochum/Menachem = Max/Mendel/Mandy/Nathan etc.  When I looked at your document , it doesn't specify male or female . I was looking for female names at first . 
To look up names you can use : Ancestry.com>Support>genealogy toolkit>Jewish Resources>Jewish Given Names database . There is a shortcut but I haven't figured it out yet . Also, the magazine Avotaynu publishes a book about names and the online extract has hundreds of male and female variations of names used by Jews in Eastern Europe. Lastly , Jewish Gen still houses Prof Estersons Jewish Given Names Database , although it is a little harder to use .
