Hey, that’s cool! So names would be spelled how they are pronounced, not how they are written in the original language? Meaning, Dumas becomes Duma because in French the “s” is not pronounced?
Also... so זולא was not זולה :) Thanks for helping me make my silly pun! And yes, it does sound slightly Aramaic although the only thing I know about Aramaic is what I have read on the forums here so obviously I don’t know that much. But I remember that ‘aleph’ at the end of the word was the Aramaic equivalent for ‘he’ at the beginning in Hebrew. I find all of these connections really interesting. I would actually love to dig deeper into Aramaic as well but I already have a lot of “irons in the fire” so maybe later.
