So, was Miriam against, or along side (which can also mean along side), or near, or Antogonistic with her father? Could not Antigonus mean, mean?, bad?, argumentative, surly?, etc.
Since our historian experts use name meanings when it secures their theories, why do they seem to always ignore them when the meaning might cause problems? Just how did "anti" come to mean "nearby" or "against" as in "alongside of?" Which was first? Anti as in fighting with, or anti as in nearby?
Was fighting with first? Then who designated it to mean "along side of", or "near to?" Or?
Actually, it might be more like "negative" with?
Sorry to be so "anti" or "negative" about this subject.
