JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Given Names -- Question #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>

My paternal grandparents entered the USA as "Basja" and "Osias" My pgm,
Basja, became Bessie. That's a given name that I am familiar with. My
pgm, Osias, became Samuel. Osias is not a name that I have ever heard
of until now. Does anyone know anything about the name of OSIAS? He
was born in Eastern Galicia, near Kozova.

Please advise if you can help me with this puzzle.
