I agree with ADT that Maciej (pronounced mAh-chay) is the Polish coloquial form of Matthias/Matthew. The Polish literary form of that name is Mateusz (pronounced mah-tAY-us).

I know too little about Lithuanian names but anyway, the name Mycholas (perhaps Mikolas, Polish Mikola) seems to correspond to Nikolaus/Nicholas rather than to Michael.

The corresponding Polish name for Michael is Michal (pronounced mEE-xahl). Most probably, its Lithuanian corespondent is Michalas.

I cannot imagine the Lithuanian correspondent of Matthias/Matthew/Maciej.
