Hello,

I am working on a project and we need to name a production we have created. The name tbat suits our needs and all agrees on is "Aleph". We did research the meanings of the word but my question is, what are the first connotations and associations that come to your mind when you see Aleph? Does it have any soecifically extreme references like religious contexts? What about alternative spellings?

Thank you in advance.

I know it is the first letter of some alphabets. The religious connection, besides the link below, is "I am the Alpha and the Omega."

Thanks for your reply. I am glad you brought up that link. A member in our team tninks word Apha completely points to Jewish religious association. Does that make sense? I have to point we do not want our product to have any association with any religion. But if only one of its shades of meaning is so that's fine. Any further input is appreciated.

The quote I gave you in the previous post is Christian, not Jewish. Christianity originated in Judaism, so they have many concepts and scriptures in common. the word "alphabet" is derived from the root "aleph."
Alef definitely is Jewish and Aleph sounds like Alef, so yes, my first thought was Judaism as well.

Alpha just means first for most of us. But it's also a very common word and used in many names.

Thank you Barbra. I like the association of beginning.
In Arabic the first letter is Alif too. I saw it soelled different ways.

The Semitic languages are from same origins.

When you said Aleph is definately Jewish, is that only as alphabetics wise (linguistics/Hebrew) or is there a deeper sense?
I don't understand the question. I simply associated "Aleph" with "Alef" which (as a Hebrew word) I associate with Judaism. Perhaps if I grew up speaking Arabic, I would associate Aleph with Alif and thus would associate it with Arabic instead.

You actually answered my question about your association with Alef. Thank you.
