Lleucu & The Secret Of Amen

Alternative to transliterating the English letters of Lleucu (my circle name meaning "beloved light" and "daybreak") into the Hebrew letters ללאכו, is the phonetic transliteration ללאכי.

Lleucu is pronounced "Lly-kee" (i.e. "Lley-kee"). Consequently, ללאכי is a better phonetic transliteration, whereas ללאכו is a better letter transliteration. In both transliterations, the א is vowelized with tzere [1]. Importantly, both forms correctly convey the name in Hebrew, depending upon one's method of transliteration and kavanah. I claim both forms for my circle name Lleucu.

In a previous post, I wrote that ללאכו has a gematria of 87, which corresponds to the Divine Name Akvah. Akvah pertains to the right "side" of Divine Da'at (Divine Knowing). Similarly, ללאכי has a correspondence to Divine Names, through its gematria of 91; specifically, to the union of Hashem and Adnut (the secret of amen).



[1] Tzere corresponds kabbalistically to the sefirah Binah. (R' Aryeh Kaplan, Meditation & Kabbalah, p. 185)
