The name Shu ayb does not appear in pre-Islamic Arabic sources nor in the proto-Arabic inscriptions from North Arabia, in which thousands of personal names have been preserved.
I believe that Shu ayb is a mistake for Sha ya (spelled with final alif), the Arabic form of Isaiah.
We should ask, however, since the name Shu ayb appears eleven times in the Koran, how the same mistake could have been repeated so often.
