Untitled[edit]

Info I have found out from a good source:

  • "Jonathan" does not come from the Greek noun for god.
  • Claiming that Samuel comes from the Sumerian El is speculative.
  • Johnathan is Hebrew, from Yehova. Samuel is Hebrew, from El - the Hebrew word for God.

Can we have some confirmation of this?

I must insist on sources for this article. This information seems to be amazingly wrong. - Ta bu shi da yu 14:13, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)

This User applied a "disputed factual accuracy" label to the very abbreviated entry (perhaps partly because it was headed Theophory— unnecessarily obscure, a common Wikipedia failing). I've now added some quickly-googled references and removed the label. More generally, there is currently a lot of behind-the-scenes discussion going on at Wikipedia:No original research. Here is a classic case of perfectly commonplace information being challenged, taken for "original research"—"I must insist on sources for this article"—simply because the User is uninformed. "Theophory" was a pretty opaque heading, we'd all agree... --Wetman 02:59, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Further: "Theoditus" seems to be a misspelled of "Theodotus". - Ta bu shi da yu 14:15, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Another time one might just fix misspellings. Rather than label them "disputed factual accuracy" --Wetman 02:59, 13 Mar 2005 (UTC)

"Jonathan" is indeed Hebrew. It is an Israelite name and a contraction of "Jehonathan" יְהוֹנָתָן listed below; both forms are used interchangeably for the son of King Saul. This name is not directly related to the Semitic god Yaw, who was not worshipped by the Israelites, but is clearly derived from the name of the Israelite God YHWH, i.e. Yahwe, Jehovah or whatever. There may be some link between the names YHWH and Yaw, but no direct link. The same is true for the El name in Samuel, Elizabeth etc; although El was a Canaanite deity, for the Israelites who used these names El was simply one of the words they used to refer to their one God.

Can Theophoric Names be derived from "YaHWeH"?[edit]

In section # 5 of the Wikipedia Article:Theophoric Names, three scholarly sources are quoted as saying that theophoric names can be derived from "YaHWeH".

The question being raised here:
Can it be shown that theophoric names can be derived from YaHWeH?

Can Nethaniah be derived from YaHWeH?[edit]

_____________________________________________________________________
Second attempt to derive Nethaniah by compounding YaHWeH with Nathan
_____________________________________________________________________
Does יַהְוֶה [i.e. YaHWeH] added as a suffix to נָתַן [i.e. Nathan] = נְתַנְיָה [ i.e. Nethaniah ]?

Nethaniah [ i.e. נְתַנְיָה ] is found at 2 Kings 25:23 in the NIV Interliniar Hebrew-English Old Testament where it is translated as "Nethaniah"
James Strong designates נְתַנְיָה as Hebrew Word # 5418.
James Strong transliterates נְתַנְיָה as Nethanyah

1. I added the suffix יַהְוֶה [ i.e. YaH:WeH ] to נָתַן‎ [ i.e. Nathan ].

I ended up with יַהְוֶה + נָתַן = [ Nathan + yah:weh ]


2. I now changed the "Nun Sofeet" to a regular Nun with a silent shewa under it.

I ended up with יַהְוֶה + נָתַנְ = נָתַנְיַהְוֶה = [Nathan:yah:weh]


3. I assumed that the qamets under the first nun in Nathan reduces to a shewa.

I now ended up with נְתַנְיַהְוֶה = [Nethan:yah:weh]


4. I now dropped the "segol heh" which left the waw as a consonant:

I now ended up with נְתַנְיַהְו = [Nethan:yah:w]


5. At this point can the "waw" be deleted, and then can the silent shewa under the heh be deleted, which means that we would end up with נְתַנְיַה = [Nethan:yah]
However is there a Hebrew grammar rule that will now require that the patah under the yod be changed to a qamets?

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The following text was found at YHWHgroup ּYHWH:

>>>

So can anyone explain how Y'ho- could come from Yahweh?


Here is the answer Koehler/Baumgartner
(Lexicon in Veteris Testamenti Libros, Leiden 1985)
gives:
"'Yahweh' at the end of a word is shortened into 'yaw' (...) and this,
'w' being a semi-vocalic consonant, is stressed as '-yahu',
this shortened to 'ya-' (...).
Note! If יַהְוֶה [i.e. YaH:WeH] had been יַהוּהַּ [e.g. YaHuWaH], the process would have been more straight forward.
One source that was quoted on b-hebrew claimed that יַהוּהַּ [e.g. YaHuWaH], could be derived from "Iaoue" ?????
Note" It seems more likely that יַהוּהַּ [e.g. YaHuWaH], could have been derived from "Iaoua".


At the beginning of a word 'yahu' looses its stress becoming 'yehu-',
which, by dissimilation of the vowel, becomes 'yeho-',
this, by elision of 'h' becomes 'yo';
thus: 'Yahunatan' becomes 'Yehunatan' becomes 'Yehonatan' becomes 'Yonatan' (...).
Preceding a syllable with 'u',
'yo' turns into 'ye' [pronounce 'yay'], as in: 'Yeshua'."
(words between square brackets are mine)

"'Yahweh' at the end of a word is shortened into 'yaw' (...) and this,
'w' being a semi-vocalic consonant, is stressed as '-yahu',
this shortened to 'ya-' (...)."


____________________________________________________________________________________

Using the italicized text above as a guide
[see the full text at the beginning of this section],
the question being asked is:


Does יַהְוֶה [i.e. YaHWeH] added as a suffix to נָתַן [i.e. Nathan] = נְתַנְיָה [ i.e. Nethaniah ]?

Nethaniah [ i.e. נְתַנְיָה ] is found at 2 Kings 25:23 in the NIV Interliniar Hebrew-English Old Testament where it is translated as "Nethaniah"
James Strong designates נְתַנְיָה as Hebrew Word # 5418.
James Strong transliterates נְתַנְיָה as Nethanyah


  • Going in steps according to the above italicized text,
we would seem to first get נְתַנְיָו [i.e. Nethanyaw].
    1. Note that the qamets that was originally under the 1st nun in נָתַן [i.e. Nathan] has been reduced to a simple shewa.
    2. Note that the 2nd nun [ i.e. nun sofeet ] in נָתַן [i.e. Nathan] has been changed to a regular nun.
    3. Note that a silent shewa is now found under this 2nd nun, as during the compounding process, a yod now follows the 2nd nun. This silent shewa is being used as a syllable divider.
    4. "YaHWeH" has now been shortened to "Yaw". HOW??? WHY???
      1. Note that both "heh's and the segol" are now missing from "YaHWeH", yet the "waw" remains. WHY???


  • Continuing according to the above italicized text,
the next step requires that the waw in "Yaw" be stressed as "Yahu",
and it would seem that we might get נְתַנְיָהוּ [ i.e. Nethanyahu ].
    1. Note that this required that the first heh in "YaHWeH", removed earlier, be replaced, and the "waw" is now changed to a "shureq" WHY???


  • Again going by the italicized text above,
after shortening "YaHWeH" first to "Yaw",
[by deleting both "heh"'s and the "segol"]
the removed 1st heh is then re-inserted,
and the "waw" in "Yahw" is now changed to a "shureq".
which changes "Yahw" to "Yahu",
and the italicized text notes that "Yahu" is then shortened to "Ya-"


  • Additional italicized text says:
At the beginning of a word, 'yahu' looses its stress, becoming 'yehu-',
which, by dissimilation of the vowel, becomes 'yeho-',
this, by elision of 'h' becomes 'yo';
  • Thus: 'Yahunatan' becomes 'Yehunatan' becomes 'Yehonatan' becomes 'Yonatan' (...).



Nethaniah [ i.e. נְתַנְיָה‎ ] is found at 2 Kings 25:23 in the NIV Interliniar Hebrew-English Old Testament where it is translated as "Nethaniah"
James Strong designates נְתַנְיָה‎ as Hebrew Word # 5418.
James Strong transliterates נְתַנְיָה‎ as Nethanyah


יַהְוֶ

Going in steps according to the above italicized text, we would seem to first get נְתַנְיָו‎ [i.e. Nethanyaw].


In the next subsection, Christian Ginsburg's explanation for why Theophoric names prefixed with "Jeho" were altered and became Theophoric names prefixed with "Jo" will be presented.

"Yeho" prefixes changed to "Yo" prefixes[edit]

In the table in section 3.1 of the Wikipedia Article:Theophoric Names it should be noted that 13 Theophoric names with "Yeho" prefixes have corresponding forms [in bold type] in which the letters "e" and "h" have been omitted.

In Scott Jones' Article:"Jehovah", it states:

In the 19th century a converted Jew and Masoretic scholar, Christian Ginsburg, undertook a detailed study of the Masoretic text. In this study, he traced the pedigree of the Scriptures and noted how the Jewish guardians of the Hebrew text took safeguards in order to make sure the Tetragrammaton was not accidentally pronounced at the wrong time or by the wrong people or in the wrong place -
"There are, however, a number of compound names in the Bible into the composition of which three out of the four letters of the Incommunicable Name have entered. Moreover, these letters which begin the names in question are actually pointed (יְהוֹ) Jeho, as the Tetragrammaton itself and hence in a pause at the reading of the first part of the name it sounded as if the reader was pronouncing the Ineffable Name. To guard against it an attempt was made by a certain school of redactors of the text to omit the letter He so that the first part of the names in question has been altered from Jeho ( יְהוֹ) into Jo ( יוֹ)."
Christian Ginsburg, Introduction To the Massoretico-Critical Edition Of The Hebrew Bible, p 369.

Can Yehownathan be derived from YaHWeH?[edit]

___________________________________________________________________________________

Adding the prefix יַהְוֶה [i.e. YaHWeH] to נָתַן [i.e. Nathan]


"'Yahweh' at the end of a word is shortened into 'yaw' (...) and this,
'w' being a semi-vocalic consonant, is stressed as '-yahu',
this shortened to 'ya-' (...)."


At the beginning of a word 'yahu' looses its stress becoming 'yehu-',
which, by dissimilation of the vowel, becomes 'yeho-',
this, by elision of 'h' becomes 'yo';
thus: 'Yahunatan' becomes 'Yehunatan' becomes 'Yehonatan' becomes 'Yonatan' (...).


____________________________________________________________________________________

Using the italicized text above as a guide
the question being asked is:

Can Yehownathan be derived from YaHWeH?
Or in other words,
Can יְהוֹנָתָן, be derived from יַהְוֶה?

Does נָתַן [i.e. Nathan] prefixed with יַהְוֶה [i.e. YaHWeH] = יְהוֹנָתָן [ i.e. Yehownathan ].

Yehownathan [ i.e. יְהוֹנָתָן ], is found at Samuel 14:6 in The NIV Interlinear Hebrew-English Old Testament where it is translated as Jonathan
James Strong designates יְהוֹנָתָן as Hebrew Word #3083.
James Strong transliterates יְהוֹנָתָן as Yehownathan.


Does יְהוֹנָתָן = יַהְוֶה + נָתַן?

The assumption is being made here, that many of the changes that were seen to occur in Section # 2.1 of these discussions will also occur here. [The next four sentences are speculative.]

  1. If יַהְוֶה [ i.e. Yahweh ] at the beginning of a theophoric name shortens to יָו [ i.e. Yaw ] we might expect to first get יַונָתַן
  1. Note that both "heh" 's and the "segol" and the "silent shewa" are missing from the prefixed יַהְוֶה— only יַו remains.
  2. For the moment נָתַן remains intact, but the finalized theophoric name יְהוֹנָתָן ends up with a "qamets" under the "taw".
  3. Does "Yaw" once again have to change to "Yahu" and then loose its stress and become "Yeho"?
What rules would change the "patah" under the "taw" into a "qamets"?

Over-emphasis on theophoric names in Hebrew[edit]

This article seems to be about the concept of theophoric names across multiple religions but more than 75% of it is about theophoric names in Hebrew. How about creating an article titled Theophoric names in Hebrew and moving most of the text in this article to that new article? That would restore the balance in this article of discussion of theophoric names in other religions. --Richard 22:50, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Samuel[edit]

The 'translation/meaning' of the bible name Samuel is stated as being "his name is El" i.e. 'his name is God'. Surely this is incorrect! --Lepton6 (talk) 12:00, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Marcus/Mars[edit]

The Roman name Marcus (and thus Marc and Mark) comes from that of the god Mars. Should this be included?Lily20 (talk) 21:05, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Not a word[edit]

Can't find this word in any of at least 20 dictionaries. Only exists on wikipedia. Seems to be a neologism, a combination of Theo (god) and -phor (metaphor; from Greek: pherein, to carry) with the suffix -ic. To carry a god's name; to bear a god's name. Someone is trying to make a word, using the internet as a vessel. This probably makes some people feel important, but violates WP:NOR. Article needs to be moved to a suitable title space, an article name not invented by Wikipedia users.--IronMaidenRocks (talk) 10:47, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Suggest you buy yourself a better dictionary.
A simple Google Books search finds almost 19,000 hits for "theophoric" used in this sense [1]. It is the standard term for this idea.
Here's a very short def at the Oxford Dictionaries website [2], and here's Merrion-Webster confirming that it is in the full Merrion-Webster Unabridged Dictionary: [3].
It is not a new concept. The older variant "theophorous", now less common, appears in almost a dozen articles in the 1905 Jewish Encyclopedia, published over a century ago [4]; and here's the topic being discussed in an article from the 1911 Catholic Encyclopedia [5]. Jheald (talk) 11:48, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
It's in the printed Concise Oxford Dictionary (1990 edition). SamuelTheGhost (talk) 13:02, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
Interestingly, Google Ngrams shows "theophorous" and "theophoric" both coming in in the mid-1880s, and roughly maintaining par with each other until about 1960, after which "theophoric" very much leaves "theophorous" behind: [6]. Jheald (talk) 21:45, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry about that. Its just all too common for people to try and create words on Wikipedia, such as "afrophobia". It seems the Oxford Compact is the only dictionary to have published the word in over 20 years. Google hits really don't show anything conclusive; Sometimes google hits regarding a term come from wikipedia-related searches, or blogs and other internet sites may be quoting from wikipedia. In any case, you're right. It seems like this term has been used almost exclusively within fields of academic religious study. That may be why most dictionaries do not contain it. --IronMaidenRocks (talk) 13:12, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
Google Books and Google Ngrams are based on printed material, not the web. There weren't so many websites around in 1885. Jheald (talk) 15:07, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
It's also in the printed Concise Oxford Dictionary, 1976 edition, which is well before the web. SamuelTheGhost (talk) 16:15, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, Jheald, I misunderstood you. I didn't think of using Google Books to find out the origin of the word. Seems I jumped the gun in ignorance. --IronMaidenRocks (talk) 05:56, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
