Hi Genners,

This message is for Susan who asked about the name Shabsha.

A famous person in Jewish history was Shabbetai Zevi,(various spellings),
who thought he was a messiah (how appropriate for today).
You will find an article about him in the Encyclopedia Judaica or any other
history book on 17th century Judaism.
Your name Shabsha sounds like a version of this first name. It is a good
name, not necessarily with negative connotations. It was usually given to
someone who was born on the Sabbath.
