Do you have any Golda's in your tree? 
I would guess that Golda could also become a Gussie.

My paternal grandmother Gussie was Golda. 

My maternal great-aunt Gussie also used the secular name Gisela and had the Yiddish name Gitza. I’m not familiar with “Gitza” but that’s what appears on her matzevah.

I once looked into the question of what someone named Gussie might have been called in Yiddish, or even what English name Gussie could be a diminutive for, and one suggestion that I found was Rebecca or Rivka. I have no idea why this would be.

My paternal grandmother was known alternately as Gussie or Golda.  I believe her given name was Golda.  Good luck.

In my experience, Gussie was the nickname of someone bearing the name of Augusta or Augustine.  As for the Hebrew or Yiddish name, again a Golda and an instance, of a Gela, a rather rare name.

My great-aunt Sadie was originally Zissel, and my great-aunt Gussie was Golde. My great-great aunt Jessie was originally Sheyndl. While usually Yiddish names had Americanized names that sounded similar, that wasn't always the case. My great-great aunt Katie was born Bluma, my aunt Sylvia was also called Zelda.

My grandmother Augusta, generally known as Gussie b.1898 in England to parents from Poland, was Gisha.
On the other hand, Augusta's aunt Gusta (b.1875 in Poland) was Gittel in her marriage auth and Gisha on her USA death record.

Two of my great-grandfather's brothers married women who went by the name Gussie.  One appears on a passenger list as "Dwore" or (I assume) Dvora; the other was Gittel.

My mother was listed as Gussie in the 1910 census when she was 3 wks old.  The family always called her Gus. As an adult she was formally known as Augusta but at work where she could control what she was called she was Auggie.  My sister and I had never heard a Hebrew name for her. At her funeral her step sister told the rabbi her Hebrew name and that was the only time i ever heard it.  It could have been Gisha although it sounded to me at the time like Descha.
