My grandfather was Shia Abba and he called himself Abe. However, in Polish
the name Shia (or Sia) is a dimunitive of Joshua.

Can anyone tell me if the name Joshua has any connection to the given
name Sia? I have an ancestor who was known as Sia in Humenne, Slovakia
in the early 1800's. I have a death certificate, hopefully of his son
in 1928 New York, where the father's name is stated as Joshua. I would
like to work out if these are the same man.
