  2. Broyges*
  3. Mee Ke'amcha Yisroel?
  4. Chakira

  6. Misfit

Rejected psudonyms

  1. Man in the Middle
  2. Terech **
  3. Better Than Thou
  4. Misfit

*This is yiddish, or Middle German if you perfer. I am not sure what it means. Something about arguing.

**Why Terech? He's the middling man's patron saint. Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot, his daughter-in-law Sarai,  and set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Haran, they settled there. Terech never made it to Canaan. He stopped at Haran. Despite his very best intentions, Terach only made it half way, or maybe because of his good intentions, he was zoche to finish half the journey. Either way, he was Abraham's father, and that's a dream worth having.


Just FYI -- broyges is actually good Biblical Hebrew in a slightly Yiddish guise, meaning "in anger".  

actually, i thought it's come to mean more like 'insulted', but it is hebrew, still used today.
