karl,
 
you wrote, "every consonant was followed by a vowel. As such, your name may
originally have been “Re-be-qa-he” with the stress on the penultimate
syllable."
 
i thought the terminal heh is not a consonant in this case, but rather a mater lectiones for the vocalization of the previous letter (kuf). if so, why would you put a vowel ("e") after the heh?
 
thanks,
