I was just reading on Atomic Physics, and when I came across the name "Rutherford", could not feel that the word "Ruther" sounded like "Rudra", which is an epithet for Shiva.
Dental "T" and "D" are interchange able and one is a Hard Constant and the other is a Soft Constant. Besides, it is noted that many people when communicating, will find that people say the one sound, and the other party understands the other!
Then "T" and "Th" are basically same, one is not aspirated and the other is.
So this was just another co-incidence? I thought maybe. I started following more links and found this Ruther Cross. We know that even after people are converted, they carry some of their old religious beliefs and traditions. This reminds me of a Shiv Lingam, and we know from other articles, that Shiva was God, or the Male or Father Principle was worshiped throught Middle East and Europe as well. It was in America also, and at Golden Gate Park, in San Francisco, they found a Shiva Lingam, of which I have the video. It became a world tourist spot for Hindus, till the Authorities decided to remove the so called object of public nuisance.
Askham Bryan is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The name comes from Ascam or Ascha meaning "enclosure of ash-tree". "Bryan" is Bryan FitzAlan. He and his heirs held the manor from the 12th century.
Here "c" can be also taken as "k" sound. And if you note, all words above which are variants for the the word "Askham", has "s" before, which indicates that this is the "sk" (or "ks" or "kch"if one misspells, dyslexic, or has left-to-right or right-to-left erros). The sound is like in the word "Kshatriya", but some people say it like "Shatriya", or Shaktriya" to an uninitiated, and the meanings are very close and related.
Here the "s" or "ch" is the Palatal "Ch", and there is some rules which says when the sibilant sounds come, one needs to combine with "k" sound. Then often palatal sounds are converted to guttaral sounds or vice versa. But here "ks" is a very common prefix. One may also write like "aksh".
skandha = shoulder, stem or trunk of a tree; section, chapter of a book, mass, multitude, a whole or aggregate.
akshaya - Not Destroyed, Space. Objective will be "aksham"
askhalana - not wavering from (abl.), firmness, which is an attribute of tree, rock or trunk.
Askanda - not spilling, holding - an attribute of tree, rock or trunk.
askandayant - not spilling; not omitting or neglecting.
askanna - not being split
askhalana - not wavering from (abl.), firmness
Also, note the word "Nag" associated with a Pub at Askham_Bryan. Naga, or Naagas, is/was a cullt Snake Worshipers,and associated with Shiva Worship and the lower form the Tantra - taken up in the West - which has eating meat, drinking alcohol, revelry, and sex as part of their beliefs. Perhaps it is a remnants of the early days of the world religions when forest dwelling was going on. In India, the Bheels were like this during till late 20th Century.
BTW, I have a colleague called Bryan, and he is from Irish and German background. I asked him what does his name mean. He said it meant a Head, Lord, Provider.
Interestingly I could predict this meaning just by the beginning sound of "bR" or "bhR", which both are also connected. "bR" means to grow, to become strong, to expand, etc. That is why the Super Soul or the First Principle which I call, is called Brahaman, by which the priests were called "Brahmanaas" or ""Brahmanaah".
The other root is "bhR", which means to feed, to look after, to protect, to support, to shine, to posses, etc.
So one would say this is all co-incidences? And we know about the Proto Indo European people being the same with a common language, common religion, and common civilization. Now see the Temple of Mithra in London.
This was a temple built by the Romans when they colonized England before the advent of Christianity. The Romans had taken the God from Persians as per the Western History. The same God is known in the Vedas as Mitra. One can take "t" and "th" sound as normal corruptions.
Still far fetched? Read the following postings:
