Re: name "Isser" - is this a diminutive of "Yissacher"? #galicia

I have been told that in Russia, "Isser" was the diminutive for "Israel" or Yisroel."
I have a list of people >from Galicia and on it there are both the name "Isser" and
"Israel" but no "Yissacher". This began me thinking and wondering if "Isser" is/was
used in the Galizaianer world as the diminutive for "Yissacher." Any thoughts??

Thank you. Shabbat Shalom.
