Question #2

Finally! Another question from my invitation for my friends and readers to ask me anything:


Ah - my screen name.

I'll tell you, I'm not 100% sure how to pronounce it. I took both words from the Hebrew Tree of Life. They are two of the names of God. Ahavah means 'Love' and Ehyeh means 'I Am'. I don't speak Hebrew, so I'm probably pronouncing it wrong.

But as for how I personally pronounce it - and I hope this makes sense - is like this:

Ahavah: Uh-HA-vuh

Ehyeh: Ay (as in long 'A') - yuh

I was wondering where it came from- interestingly, I've been pronouncing it the same way as you!

We must be on the right track then! Still wondering anything? The ask a question thread is still open... :)

It kinda reminded me of "ha-va-na-gila" the classic jewish dance song. So I've been pronouncing it like that too. I really like it!

LOL - I never thought of that. I've always wondered what that meant.

Hebrew
I think you have the pronunciations correct, from what I know.

Re: Hebrew
Fantastic! I really hoped so. I'd eventually like to learn Hebrew, but I'm probably too old to catch on.

Thanks for coming by my blog! Hope you'll drop me a line and let me know who you are. :)

Yay! That's how I read it too.
I love that through the online world, we can choose names we want, that have special meaning to us, instead of what we have been given by parents who really did not know us at the time.

Yeah, I really liked the meaning behind the name. Of course, I *had* wanted to name one of my daughters 'Ahavah' when I found it, but now it will always be my online handle to me. :P
