Have you tried the Given names database at Jewishgen.org?  You can do a search from "foreign" to "European".  Note that the answers will vary depending on the country  where your ancestor originated.  So be sure to set the country in Europe (and the foreign country as well).  I believe that is now listed as one of the general databases.
