Have the names Yosel/Yesel and Israil ever been used interchangeably?

I’m researching my family history and know my 4th-great-grandfather was Israil Faibisovich born in Mglin, Bryansk, Russia in 1832, son of Faybish Faibisovich.

I found a census record for the town of Mglin in 1834 that states there was a Faybish Faibisovich with son Yesel’ born in 1832. Is it possible this Yesel’ (name possibly was Yosel’ instead of Yesel’) could actually be Israil?

Is there a possibility these names are interchangeable?
