OT: I have a question for you.


I'm curious to get other's thoughts on this VERY unimportant matter and I
guess this is mainly for residents of the U.S., but anyone is free to
answer.
It has come across as a newsflash that Brangelina, Angelie Jolie and Brad
Pitt, have named their new baby girl Shiloh Belle.
My question: What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the
word Shiloh?

Shiloh has lots of associations, but Shiloh Belle sounds to me like a riverboat.

Why I asked this question is because with Angelina being such a peacenik you would think she would realize that a lot of people would associate the name with the Civil War.
I thought it a strange choice, even though I was told it's a biblical name.

How about the Bible? Not certain of the context but a road near me when I lived in Shad Bay was named Shiloh Road and some people didn't think 'It was proper" but I didn't really get what exactly was not proper. Better look it up now. lol

Neil Diamond Song is the first thing to my mind - though being an Australian none of the intricacies of the Civil War names are overly meaningful. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

IIRC, the civil war battle field was named for nearby Shiloh Church.. I had always heard the biblical name meant peace - rather like Shalom. It apparently means rest or quiet, so her name translates literally as "quiet new" (although the spelling of nouvel is masculine, feminine would be nouvelle).

Shilo , A [Biblical] city on Ephrayim Mountain, existed in the Mid and late Bronze time, Bible situates the city , North of Beth El , eastern to the road that goes from Beth El To Schem And from the south To Levonah. Judges 21, 19 . Ohel Moe`ed The sacred tent was there for a while. The story Of Samuel etc,,,, mirjam

Sorry Marg Shilo Doesn`t Translate into any word related to Shalom or peace .... It might be a mistake in translating another word Shalev [that is written with same letters , when words aren`t punctuated -we have no vowel letters in Hebrew- and that it must be read Shalev which means indeed the Male Singular form of tranquil , calm, But if they wanted her toi have this meaning in HER name they should have called her Shelva Female singular of Shalev ,,,, or Shalva, =Calm,Tranquility mirjam

A Sea shanty! "Johnny come down to Shiloh" (although, originally, it was "Hilo") and was a capstan shanty.

I wish them all the privacy they can muster and that people stop referring to them as Brangelina.

I can't stand this trend. Merging two famous people's names into one generally crappy one.
That and the way all the celebrity driven shows and magazines now refer to a woman's pregnant belly as a "baby bump."
A coworker leaves her People magazines on my desk when she's done, and during slow times at work I leaf thru it (mostly because it's there! lol) and these two trends just make me cringe.
