Hi all. This seems safe enough for a first post.
Sruly was taken and my adorable 3 yr old nephew calls me Uncle Sroooly or something like that.

Welcome to DDF! Shame that this isn't your actual first post, though... :P

Ask an administrator.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Boruch was taken. So was Baruch. I always wondered why people don't spell it like this - seems more accurate...

My two nicknames growing up were Riley, and Wiles. I got involved in DDF in 2013, hence 23.

Honestly, I had questions on your screenname since the first time I saw it. If you want to be consistent, then it should be Burich.

If you pronounce a komotz as a kumutz like the "haimisher yidden" do, then you pronounce a shuruk as a shirik. Thus, Avrohom Avinu becomes Avruhum Avini and Boruch becomes Burich.
