The Name

Version 1: Joseph our great grand father used to work as a weaver. The small weave machine in Arabic translated is Maghzal and in the lebanon dialect like “Mghaizel”. Mghaizel means also a “thin rope or cord”

Version 2: Joseph used to flirt with his great love Mariam. There for he got the Nick name “the Flirter” or “the lover” in Lebanon Arabic. And it is exactly “Mghaizel”.

In the Latine languages used some of us to write just the letter “g” instead of “gh”. there for are the names Migesel or Mogayzel or Megezel. The name is still untill now pronounced Lebanon like “Mghaizel” and in Palstine “Mghezel”. Some of us used even to change the letter “z” in to “s” like in Germany “MIGESEL”. The letters “ai” or “ay” are spelled the same. see Mogayzel or Moghaizel or Meghaizel.
