Finding great Grandfather’s Hebrew name

My great grandfather was gassed at Auschwitz… we’re now introducing a baby boy to our family and would love to name him after this person. We know his German name but have no idea what his Hebrew name was. I’ve tried searching Yad Vashem records but nothing comes up to indicate his Hebrew name. 95% of the family was killed in the Holocaust and those two or three that survived were very young at the time. Probably a stretch, but is there any way to find this out? I have a feeling not, and that most records belonging to synagogues were probably destroyed. I just had to give it one last effort before giving up. Thanks!
