>Walter, did you know that "Tamuz" is thge name of one of the months of the Jewish calendar? In fact, all other names are also Akkadian. Interesting that  ancient Yahweh worshippers , possibly post-exilic, didn't mind adopting a name of  a pagan deity fo their month!

Interestingly enough, it is the name of one of the modern Turkish 
months, July I think, proving that Muslims also don't mind this. Several 
of the Turkish month names are taken from the Jewish calendar.
