Decoration : Deer

A few gravestones are decorated with deers. 

I have no given name for the man buried under this gravestone on Row 20, Grave 19. Could his given name be Zvi?
If it would be possible to photograph the bottom of this gravestone, we may find out.

A deer in English is Zvi in Hebrew.
Zvi in German is Hirsch.
Hirsch could be Hersch  in Yiddish with German spelling.
Hirsch could be Hersz in Yiddish with Polish spelling.
