Meaning of male name Osia #names


Terry Ashton
 

In some documents I have had translated from Russian, the male name of a relative is presented as either “Osia or Oshia.”  I am wondering if anyone can shed any light as to what this name may relate to in English e.g. Hosea/Joshua?

Many thanks for your continued help.
