Well, I have a few questions:

Shoshan, or Susan in English. Is it derived from Susa(which is pronounced Shush or Shusha)?

Because if you think about it, Shoshan could be a form of Susan, as in someone being from Susa. Now, honestly, I do not believe that is the case. That they are just merely similar and that's all, I was just commenting on it just to see what anyone else thought.

Also, I noticed there was a king in an Assyrian king list, his name ending in Ninua. Wouldn't this be old Nineveh, pronounced Ninua?

Just wondering-
