In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

Why Noah is a Hypocrite

So, I just think it's hypocritical for Noah to name his son Ham when he was Jewish and they don't even eat ham. Angela claims he was not Jewish, but he is in the Bible! And he has the same god as the other Jewish people. And Jewish people claim him as their ancestor. Angela says they had not come up with the pork rule at that time. But pigs have existed for a long time and they were around then. So, a) he should not have named his son after a food, and b) it was even a food he says you shouldn't eat. Angela has come up with some totally false meaning for ham. She says it means "one without prejudice" when we all know ham is a type of pig meat. She also claims he married Egypt. When we all know that Egypt was around for a long time before Noah. Oh, Ang is calling it Egyptus, which cannot be, because Latin had not been invented yet, and we all know that the -us ending is Latin. Angela says they did not become Jews till Jacob's kids were born. But they already lived in Israel then, and the Jews claim this is their homeland, so they must have already been Jews by the time Jacob was born, which precedes his children being born, so Jews had been around for a long time. Ang says they didn't really call themselves Jews until the tribe of Judah. If that is true, then why do the Jews believe in the part of the Bible before Judah? Ang says all Hebrew people please be open-minded, but I'm not talking about the Hebrews, I'm talking about the Jews. Oh, Ang says now (changing her story) that they were Hebrews before they were Jews. She says from Abraham they're Hebrew, from Judah they're Jews. But Judah was Abraham's great-grandson, so that doesn't make any sense. Obviously, Angela has been sleeping during her gospel doctrine class AND sacrament meeting or she would know that Jews trace their Jewishness through their maternal line, not their paternal line. Therefore all this stuff about Abraham is beside the point. They were already Jews. And my main point is still that Noah was a hypocrite to name his son Ham when he didn't even supposedly believe that you should eat ham.
