The Hebrew name shabtai is shabsai (Sephardi vs ashkenazi pronunciation) shepsel is the Yiddish version.   Btw many an Israeli today named after a grandfather or previous generation is Roie (shepherd) as in Yiddish a shof is a sheep & shepsel is a lamb.   Also rakhel is a female ewe.   So Rachel is also a possible namesake
