    That was me. I thought it was clever. Do you get the multiple meanings?

    Well, YW Moderator-42, at least I know what both your subtitle and the number after your name mean. But you have to know the question, v’hamavin yavin.

    “Do you get the multiple meanings?”

    Nope.

    Aminodov was the father of Elisheva, the wife of Aharon HaKohain (see Parshas Va’eira). He is also the ancestor of Dovid Hamelech (see end of Megilas Rus), so whether you are descended from Aharon or Dovid you would be a descendant of Aminodov.

    Got it and appreciate it (though my mom is Elisheva which is kind of creepy).

    My kids have the honor of having a shtar yichus going back to King David (through my wife). I only have a mesorah of Kehuna. My papers must have gotten lost in Spain (though I did just find out we’re related to the Rapaports some way back).

    With all that, it’s just as I say to my many friend who are Geirim that they are the only ones who can prove that they are %100 kosher Yidden. 🙂

    My “multiple meanings” was referring to your mother’s name and the fact that you are a Kohain. I thought you had said somewhere that you were from Dovid HaMelech as well. I guess that was your wife.

    And I love that line about geirim being the only 100% kosher yidden. 🙂

    (Though how would they prove that the beis din that converted them were Jewish?)

    Maybe the same person could take mine away. I think it’s pretty stupid.

    OOM (WUM) and Nechoma were both me. One was based on the screenname pronunciation thhread. The other was based on an anti-subtitle thread. If you don’t like it I can have it removed.

    Thanks

    BTW, 42, I do think that OOM (WUM)’s subtitle is great, just mine was based on one post in one thread and is not representative of who I am.

    I think my current subtitle “member” is quite nice, especially compared to similar possibilities such as “dismembered” or “membrane” and “remember, remember, the fifth of november”.

    So I think I’d like to stay with my current one, one that classifies me along with most of K’lal Yisroel, and to try to keep my uniqueness 😉

    The question, when you are teaching Data structures to a room full of geeks is “Guys, can you give me a random number?”

    We used to have clever subtitles like that in the old days.
