I found this really interesting thesis paper as I searched for possible alternative names for some of my jewish ancestors.  Thought others might find it of interest as well:

Very interesting   Here’s the direct link to the dissertation itself. https://academicworks.cuny.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2840&context=gc_etds  It’s online. I’ll add this to the Jewish Roots Project Resource list.
