Aura Tehilla

The new baby's name is Aura Tehilla. In keeping with safe Internet practices, we will not be posting pictures of Aura on the blog. This should keep her safe from Internet predators.

There are a lot of interesting nuances between this Israeli birth and all the previous American births. One thing that I thought was funny was the guy who walked into all the rooms in the maternity ward handing out his business card and asking, "Do you need a mohel?"

In English, Aura means radiant light. In Hebrew it means light.
The Hebrew Name is spelled אורה תהילה

I like the name, but the English splelling of Orah mystifies me. At first I thought her name was aura, as in a presence surrounding, or the thing that epilepsy people get before a seizure. Are you sure you are spelling ehre English naem correctly?

Being that you live in Israel it does not really metter.

Some people transliterate differently then I do. I call her Aura, and I wanted the Hebrew and English name to mean basically the same thing.
Aura is a radiating presence, which is very similar to אורה, which is light.
