Additional Info:
Interesting note about Harry's hebrew name, because my Mom and everyone always thought his Hebrew name was Herschel, but on his grave, it says Tsvi. Well -- Tsvi (or Tzvi or Zvi) is hebrew for a gazelle. While (according to wikipedia) deer and gazelles may appear similiar superficially, they are in different taxonomic families. But since gazelles are unknown in Europe, the name Tzvi was transposed onto deer, the most similar animal. The name Hirsch was the yiddish name for deer. The relatively common practice of naming children "Tzvi Hirsch" originated with this error, and has continued in the tradition of naming offspring. So he simply used his Yiddish name.
