    ר’ יחיאל ברוך בן ר’ משה צבי האגער אדמו”ר מסאווראן בסטאנאוויץ נכד בא”ב
    להרה”ק ר’ משה מסאווראן זי”ע ומצד אמו בת ר’ דוד האגער מזאבלטוב בן בעל
    אהבת שלום מקאסוב זי”ע

    His original name was most probably Gitterman being a direct decsendant of the Savronner Rebbe, for some reason he adopted his mother’s maiden-name Hager.

    I doubt he was known as the Savronner Rebbe, I now learned that the reason he took the name Hager was after his parents divorced and he grew up with his Grandfather the Zabeltover Rebbe Reb Dovid Hager

    Recently There was a Savraner rebbe In Israel By the name of R’ Zundel Hager. In fact his son reprinted the Sefer of the Savraner Rav.

    Reb Yehuda Zundel Hager was a nephew of Reb Yechiel Baruch, his father Reb Yitzchok Mier was another son of Reb Moshe Tzvi of Stanovitz-Savran
