it’s nekeiva and ends with a kamatz heh, why shouldn’t it be a girls name? And Mitzva! (thanks to the Girl’s Name thread for the idea)
So I thought about it and realized, for the same reason “Hashem” isn’t a boy’s name even though it’s zachar.April 12, 2013 2:22 am at 2:22 am #944670popa_bar_abbaParticipant
It could be. Neshama wasn’t a name until someone named their daughter that. Was shloimele the first one?April 12, 2013 2:34 am at 2:34 am #944671OneOfManyParticipant
Why, are you thinking of making your screen name your legal name?April 12, 2013 2:44 am at 2:44 am #944672
Popa: Was he? I don’t know.
OneOfMany: That would greatly enhance my anonymity.April 12, 2013 2:48 am at 2:48 am #944673WIYMember
Yeah basically its inappropriate to name a person Torah. How about naming a boy Taryag? Cool name no?April 12, 2013 3:11 am at 3:11 am #944674R.T.Participant
Because when you make a Mi Sheberach for the girl and call her Torah bas … and at the same time say …Legedelah LeBaal Torah… in front of a Torah scroll no less, it would look odd and contradictory and appear that the father and the Torah scroll are somewhat related ?!?April 12, 2013 3:46 am at 3:46 am #944675
nah,its because in class they will say “torah says this,and torah says that..” the poor kid would think she is saying all those things 🙂April 12, 2013 4:11 am at 4:11 am #944676
RT: More like she would be related to the Torah in the future, no?
yiddishmeidel: Well, I can speak from experience. When people say Torah, I do not think of myself. 🙂 (I do wish I had picked a different screenname, but it’s too late now.)April 12, 2013 4:15 am at 4:15 am #944677
torah- hmmm i would never imagine you would want to switch from such a heimish name such as you have, especially to go to a lesser one of kedusha! but im glad you dont think of yourself when pple say torah,could get very confusing like i said before!(hey look,does that mean i was actually right for a change yay good for me 🙂 )April 12, 2013 6:01 am at 6:01 am #944678ben_yehudaParticipant
It is.April 12, 2013 11:30 am at 11:30 am #944679147Participant
Why isn’t Kohen a boy’s name, as are Levy & Yisroel?April 12, 2013 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm #944680
