It is known that in handwriting the letters C, S AND L are often mistaken for each other.

My name was written in Hungarian by my great uncle on a family tree. Szosa (after my great grandmother Szosa Laya). But they all prounounced it Sossa or Sussa. My name in English is Susan (eg shoshana in Hebrew but not my name).

The way he wrote it it should be pronounced Sosha (sz is like an s and s is like an sh). So maybe he wrote it wrong or who knows. But I think your name on the manifest was Soshe. . It looked like an "L" but was an "S" for sure. Sosche,no Losche.
