"Jciek"= Yitzhak #general

Judith Romney Wegner

would the name "Jciek" in Abram Jciek be the equivalent of
Jose Gutstein
Yes, this does look like an attempt to transliterate Yitzhak!

In Hebrew, Yitzhak begins with a "Y" sound (often "lost" in the Yiddish
pronunciation Itzik, same as happens with the word Yiddish, which in
Yiddish itself is often pronounced "Iddish"). And of course the letter J
has a "Y" sound in Polish as in German, Latin, and many other languages.
