Formal name for the nickname, SHIL #ukraine #names


Susan Miller
 

Would appreciate help in finding the legal name for what I assume is a nickname, "Shil".
My grandfather seems to appear in the 1897 Russian Census, Rozhiv, Radomysl, Kiev Guberniya as "Shil".
He was known to his children as Samuel/Shaul/Shevel. 

Thank you for any assistance.

Shil is probably a diminutive of Shia, short for Yehoshua/Joshua. 

to be distinguished from Chil, short for Yechiel.
