would either of the mute admins explain why simon cowell and paul simon are under the section "historical", or why they are mentioned at all?
- There is no Historical section now; they should both be in the People list as they are both notable. Lkjhgfdsa 0 (talk) 06:02, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
"In the Bible", "On American Idol"
In the German Wikipedia there is written:
Herkunft und Bedeutung des Namens
- hebräisch Schimon: von Gott erhört
after that, Simon means "God answered (the prayer)"
But on this page is mentioned another meaning - so either the German or the Ehglish page must be wrong.
What is with the Shim'on theres no apostrophe in the name so what is it there for? --Shimonnyman 19:28, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Simon the High Priest
- Actually neither carry this meaning explicitly. Simon doesn't have a literal meaning in hebrew (i am a native speaker). It stems from the verb "to hear", and in the original context means "God has heard", so the definition given in this value is incorrect.
