Meir/Mark given names #ukraine
I know (according to the Given Names database and Message Archives)that the
association of given names Mark/Mordekhai was quite "classical" but I haven't
found any recorded link between Meir and Mark as a combination of given names.
Do any of you have examples of such a combination?

According to American minhag any name that starts with the same letter can be
substituted for another name with the same letter. This leads to some strange
combinations, but definitely Mark could be used as a secular name for Meir.
