Help with given name "Szime" #general

Dear Genners

I would appreciate some insight into what the Hebrew name "Szime" might
translate to. Three births certificates list my Hungarian great grandfather,
Ignatz (Nathan) FRIEDMAN's first wife as Szime. However I am searching
for a manifest to New York for Szime FRIEDMAN around 1892 and have not been
able to find anything. Ultimately I am trying to find her death certificate
sometime between 1893 and 1895 in New York City.

Most of the first names of the children have been changed once they were
listed in the census, so no doubt she used another first name!

Any insight would be appreciated.

One way to find Szime's American name might be to track down the
death certificates of her children, since death certificates often
include the names of the parents.
