It's me! I'm back!! And with another Name post. . . Heheheh. I seriously meant to post more than I did this past week, but. . . ah well. Hope y'all have had a lovely weekend! Can you believe August is near over??
I actually have two book reviews in the works, so stay tuned later in the week. Hopefully. :]
From the Hebrew name Binyamin, which means "son of the south" or "son of the right hand." In the Old Testament, this is the given name of the twelfth and youngest son of Jacob and founder of one of the twelve tribes of Israel. As an English name, Benjamin came into use after the Protestant Reformation. A famous bearer was Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), an American statesman, inventor, scientist, and philosopher.
From a Hebrew name which is derived from the Hebrew word re'ut, meaning "friend." This was the given name of the central character in the Old Testament Book of Ruth, a Moabite woman who was the ancestor of King David. As a Christian name, Ruth has been in use since the Protestant Reformation.
