An Observation from Marketing my 15 Year Old

Post by Secret Alias »

My son is named Benjamin. Benjamin of course is the youngest of the Biblical Patriarchs. In Samaritan the name is spelled Benjamim (ben-yamim = son of days/old age) because his parents/mother was old which fits in with him being the youngest.

In Spanish it turns out 'Benjamín' means 'the youngest' or 'the youngest player' and is a category in their youth football system = youngest player(s). https://football-evolution.com/ Funny how the Bible influences all aspects of European culture.
