I can only speak for my family from Moravia and Hungary, but from about 1800 to 1930 the Hebrew names Jeremias and Aaron were used for father/ eldest son.
Thus the two names being used were Aharon ben Yermiyahu ; and Yermiyahu ben Aharon.
The Aarons used Adolf as a secular name until it became unfashionable so they switched to Andor, the Hungarian equivalent of Andrew.
The Yermiyahu were either Jeremias or Isador.
