Hi Michael,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
On the basis that Schmika could be also be spelled Shmika, I looked this
up in Beider's book of Ashkenazic Given Names, he suggests Sime which is
derived >from Simcha joy. I expect the most common US form would be Simma.
Beider distinguishes Sime >from Shimone.
