"Jciek"= Yitzhak #general

would the name "Jciek" in Abram Jciek be the equivalent of
Itzhak?

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.
