2. Orjan Svensson: The Name "York"
Note by Brit-Am: Conventonial Histories relate that the city of York in
North England
was originally called "Eboracum" (City of the Iberi) and this became
shortened to
Yvorac or something similar and then when the Vikings came they referred to
it as "York".
The fact that "York" has its own meaning does not change the fact that the
name was chosen because
it sounded similar to the name that was already in use.

Concerning the name York, I can inform you that it is a Scandinavian name
(which replaced the earlier Eboracum). York has a different meaning than
Eboracum. York in England was called Jorvik by the Vikings. York is an
anglicised form of Jorvik. Jorvik was located in the Danelaw which was
ruled by Danish kings, the most mighty of whom was Canute the great, son
of Sweyn I Forkbeard. During Canute the great's reign Denmark (including
parts of what now is southern Sweden, were I happen to live) and most
of England belonged to the same kingdom.
Jorvik according to my understanding means "jordvik", i.e. "bay of earth"
or "bay of soil". Jord in Swedish means "earth" and "soil".
New York in my oppinion therefore means New bay of soil.
The word jord (pronounced "yourd") may originally have come from the
Hebrew root YaRaD (= "to descend"), because jord is what is UNDER our
feet. I have however seen that according to some oppinions the word
jord is related to the English word earth. In that case a relationship
to the Hebrew word eretz or aretz (= earth) is more likely. But since
jord is pronounced as "yourd" in Swedish I am more inclined to believe
in YaRaD as the SHoReSH (= source) of the Scandinavian word.

2. Aram Paquin : Biblical names-9 "Benoit"

"Benoit", along with many other French names, is very common here in
southern New England as a direct result of the large influx of French
Canadians who immigrated here from Quebec during the heyday of the textile
industry about
60 - 70 years ago. Evidently, the name also travelled to Mississippi &
Louisiana somewhat earlier as a result of the forced Acadian (hence
"Cajun") mass exile described in the saga A Tale of Evangeline.
It was, most likely, originally derived from the French: bénir = to bless
*[verb] / bénis = bless *[verb] in order to honor, by means of awarding a
name, an individual who was "blessed" in some fashion.
Incidentally, the peculiar dialect of French spoken then by those
immigrants and now by their descendants is an archaic form which remains to
this day almost indistinguishable from that still spoken in Evreux,
Normandy, which area, according to your research, was heavily influenced by
the tribe of Benjamin.

3. Query on Assyrians
>I had a thought.  After looking at some of the statues of various Assyrian
>kings and noting their prominent _beards_, I wanted to comment on the
>proclivity of Brit-Am members to identify Assyria with Germany.  Germans, by
>and large, are not known for their beards.  That being the case, how can
>they be -- even in part -- descended from Assyrians?
>As an aside, there was a news segment recently which featured a group
>calling themselves "modern Assyrians."  They happened to come from Iraq.
>Portions of Iraq and Syria are where the ancient nation of Assyria once was.


Please note we identify Germany more with Edom and with Gomer.
Assyrians may have also settled in some parts of Germany
and in a prophetic sense references to Assyria may mean Germany.
This is not a major "doctrine" of ours but rather a possibility we think
worth taking consideration
As for the depictions of ancient Assyrians. You have a point. The Assyrians
are usually depicted
as pink or brownish in skin color with hairy copious black beards.
The Germans are also quite hairy on the whole but they shave their beards.
Many people in Germany (especially in certain areas) are darkish and
brunette or black-haired.
The majority however are light-skinned and fair-haired.
Environmental influence could have been the cause of a change taking place
though this is difficult
to accept. On the other hand some of the subjects of the Assyrians (such as
the Guti and part of the Hittite
populations) were fair and even blondish people.
Also it is usually proposed that the Assyrian armies escaped from the final
destruction of Assyria. They would have been
comprised of male warriors who after several generations of marrying
fair-haired women would have had fair-haired descendants
especially when the geographical environment was favorable to light-colorings.
The Germans in the past have been especially sensitive over matters of
racial purity.
Such tendencies are often indicative of mixed racial origins.
