Comments for PHINEHAS:

Its original Hebrew form is Pinchas (pin-khahs).

Phinehas / Phineas has been ruined by Oscar winner Julia Roberts butchering of the spelling. Phineaus Walter was born in 2004, but at least gets to enjoy the lovely nickname Finn. Will its popularity rise? Time will tell.

Butchering the spelling? I much prefer the Romanized spelling. Phineaus is the only way to spell it in my book, lol. It obviously isn't a Roman name, but I do prefer the spelling if we're not going to pronounce it the way its 'mother language' does anyway.

Can also be spelled Phinnaeus like Julia Roberts' son.

Phinehas didn't kill the Israelite because he married a Midianite woman; he killed them both because they blatantly disobeyed Moses' order not to take Midianite prostitutes into their tents.
