Szyja (pronounced Shy-a) is a diminutive of Yeshua.

In a dictionary of Jewish given names I found the entry Szyja (Yoshu).  This was the first name of Szyja Soffer from Teofipol.  Could anyone please tell me what the first name means?  I am trying to connect this branch of the Soffer family to the branch with names such as Moshe, Berl, Genia Soffer also from Teofipol.  Thank you.
