Re: First name of "Shaia" #names


Sam Lorber
 

In our family, which lived in Also-Orlich, Austria-Hungary (pre Trianon Treaty), my grandfather Shaiya was short for Yeshaiyahu or Isaiah.  On his birth record from Nyiregyhaza, he was Samu, and after he immigrated to the US he was Charles. Other cousins named after the patriarch were named Saja on BMD documents during the Austria-Hungary era.  The point being, there are many diminutives of Yeshaiyahu in our family which translate to Isaiah and Anglicized to Charles.
