Magen David Shield of Power Mogen in German Yiddish Same Etymology as May Old English Maeg Major


In the brand name Mogen David (wine), the word mogen is the Yiddish pronunciation of the Hebrew word magen which means shield, in German (Yiddish) mogen meaning to have power, of the same etymology as the words major and magnus, that word root obviously common to the japhetic speakers the Germans and the semitic speakers the Hebrews as well as the Canaanites (who adopted the Hebrew language and writing), so Canaan’s great granddaughter Maia apparently had been named for the word meaning power, the daughter of Atlas and Pleione.
