Is that what the S in YitzyS stands for? Seresh?

That annual exchange where I tell the the kids say that the Achashverosh's guards that wanted to kill him were named Bigson and Teresh, and the kids try to argue that the names were Bigson and Seresh.  >:(

What's with these teachers? Do they also tell the kids that Ya'akov's youngest son's name was Vinyomin?
On a side note, when my older boy had grown to 6', and my younger one was much shorter, I'd introduce them as my bigson and seresh.

Reminds me of the phonetic spelling of Hong Kong:

H as in Heir
O as in Women
N as in Hymn
G as in Laugh

K as in Knee
O as in Soup
N as in Column
G as in Diaphragm
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Why Bigson and not Bigton?

Because the ת in בִּגְתָן doesn't get a דגש.

However the only reason ת in וָתֶרֶשׁ has no דגש is because it is preceded by a ו, just like the ב in וּבִנְיָמִֽן loses its דגש because of the ו which comes in front it the name Binyomin. בגדכפת in the beginning syllable or a word (as long as the preceding word doesn't end with an open syllable which connects to the word starting with בגדכפת) will get a דגש.

But how do you know that his name was Teresh? Maybe it was pronounced Seresh; these are Persian names, right?

This sounds almost like the מדה הי"ד שהתורה נדרשת בה.

I see why that fits that his name might be Teresh but I don't see how that makes it impossible that the name was Seresh.
