> Ahhh. I figured you were named after that Tamar, but that didn't help much. I read better than I pronounce. I actually got in a major disagreement with my Sunday School class when that Tamar was classified as one of the Bad Girls of the Bible. I ended up bringing in a copy of the commentary to the Torah to the Sunday School teacher. :)

Good for you! Tamar is completely vindicated in the story, so I don’t know why people persist in suggesting her actions are immoral. And it’s funny how people say unflattering things about Tamar, but they never castigate Ruth for going to the threshing floor and uncovering Boaz’s ‘feet’…

> I also love Hebraic names, and most of the names I was considering if I had a daughter (other than family names) came from that source. But "Dinah" has a far humbler beginning. "Dinah" is named after a dog. :D

Ah! Yes, it’s nice to use a pet’s name for something like this. Actually, I thought of using the name of a cat we had when I was a child, but it was already taken.
