Hebrew Animal Names -- Part 3 of 3


The English animal names were explained by the Edenic, but Edenic animal names are far more in tune with the essence of the animal. The only Hebrew animal name I remeber hearing an explanation for was that the [K]HaZeeYR (pig) was [K]HoZeR (returning) to the food it had already eaten and expelled. Yech!

Enjoy this sample:

Hebrew Animal Names Larger list in The Origin of Speeches, Chapter 8 (Lightcatcher Books, April, 2006). For the Edenic meanings of scores of Hebrew, English and non-English animal names, search the e-word CD Dictionary, [ X ] indicates the entry to consult, and , often, a cognate.

As brief as this sample is, it suffices to demonstrate how Edenic words, even animal names, have profound meaning. Non-Edenic words often have no meaning beyond a semantic signal, especially with animal names. Fortunately, non-Edenic words, even animal names, have meanings which can be discovered via their Edenic source.
