Looking for info about Jewish given name "Yada" #general

LaDon Wallis
 

I am researching my mother in law's possible Father. She does not know
who he is. Her mother listed a man named "Yada Rosenberg" born in
Poland in 1916. They lived in Omaha, Nebraska in 1946 when Sandra was
born to Deloris Versaw and probable Yada.

I have been searching every data base I know and cannot even find the
name Yada as a common Jewish given name. Can someone please help me -
is this a possible nickname? I don't even know if the surname would
have been Rosenberg in Poland.

Does anyone know of a Rosenberg family living in Omaha, Nebraska in
1946? I have researched the census records and phone books and have
found nothing with this name.

Thank you for any advice or help.
