"Suess," Suessel" (Zissel), and Suesslein" . . . .

All three names are derived >from the German Suess = sweet.

Can anyone tell me with what Hebrew name it is associated as kinnuy? Was it
relatively more common in certain areas or eras?

My earliest known ancestor (forgetting Adam and Eve<g>) was Suessel (ben)
Hirsch of Frensdorf, Bavaria (near Bamberg), born ca 1645. Suessel's children
all were known by their patronymic, Suesslein .
