My grandfather was German (from Upper Silesia, now Poland) and his Hebrew name was Mordechai, his secular name was Markus until he came to the USA in 1940 and changed it on his naturalization papers to MAX.

My great great grandfather was Mordechai Serwianski. Some of his descendants in the UK and US changed their surname to variously Max, Maxwell, and Morris.

In terms of first names his descendants called themselves mainly Mark or Marks or Max,.

Moshe became Morris in the US and Moss in England. My uncle Sam (as I knew
him) turned out to be named Gavriel in Hebrew. Sam was probably the most
popular man's name in the US.

You might want to consult the Given Names Databases at Jewishgen [https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/search.htm], which will give you names used in Europe corresponding to names used after emigration, and vice versa.  This database is also available at Ancestry as "Jewish Given Name Variations".   It also gives Biblical sources and meanings where applicable.

Markus or Max were typically men with the Hebrew name Mordechai, Moses would be a second choice, but anything is possible. Sometimes a man with whatever Hebrew name might choose to call himself something totally unrelated in English or another language.

--In my genealogy search I came across a ship manifest for a Markus Aronowski, and am just curious what names Max may be in Yiddish or Hebrew
