in reply to Name Space

I am mostly a lurker here, but I figured I would respond.

Enoch is the name of the 7th son of Adam. He was mostly famous for writing two books that are not included in the King James translation of the Bible (the text of the books can be found here. He is, also, one of the few people who "walked with God" and did not die; rather, was assumed into Heaven (according to the Bible).

So, a long time ago on BBS's, I needed some kind of moniker. At that time, I was studying religion and had encountered this small facet of the Christian belief. So, as unspectacular as this story is, I chose 'Enoch.' And, I've kept it around and use it as my nick pretty much everwhere.

There you have it.
