Your erudite articles focusing on the etymologies of words are quite interesting (“Sharing Some Interesting English Word Origins,” December 8, 2016). I always found it interesting how some names are inadvertently associated or connected. For example, Rev Newberger’s shul is on Newbridge Road, and Rabbi Engle, former rabbi of Kesher, is located on Engle Street. Now, isn’t that interesting? Have any others? I think you actually did do an article on that very subject a while back. Kol hakavod for your astute word origins. Always good to know where words and names emanated from along the way. It’s all a matter of semantics! Keep it coming!
