Sweet mater lectionis! I feel theophoric!

Looked up "theophoric". Found "bearing a deity". OK.

Then "mater lectionis": refers to the use of certain consonants to indicate a vowel. Interesting Wikipedia entry. Not sure how this is related to your chart, but I learned a bit about linguistics.

Have a good day.

Not really related to the chart, Leora. I was just looking for something silly to put in the title.

Plus YehoNatan, YehoYachin, YehoYakim (formerly Elyakim), and more.
