"My name's Sol. Everyone pronounces it 'soul' or tries to spell it s-a-u-l. About half the people I meet ask if it's from the Bible. The other half ask if it means like the Sun. The other thing is that a lot of Jewish people treat me as if I'm one of their 'tribe', which I happen not to be. Kind of fun to be accepted based on a name, but awkward sometimes too. I think it's odd anyway, since I never meet any real Jews named Sol who aren't 90 years old --which matches the graph above!" Jan. 18, 2007:

"My name is Sol and I can relate to EVERYTHING the person who made the first comment said - pronunciation, origin and assumed Jewishness - I have all the same experiences. Can't add much except to say that it tends to be a name people notice and remember, which can have its pros and cons!" Mar. 2, 2010:
