I'll take a stab at Ruchli - probably Ruchel, aka Rachel today, Marya,
or Maria would probably be Miriam, can't even venture a guess at
Szaja, sorry.

But, as everybody keeps saying, just because those SOUND like they
should be equivilent, doesn't mean that they are. I have a neice named
Miriam whose Hebrew name is Malka.... There really doesn't have to be
any connection whatsoever.

Good luck.
