Ah, lovely! A bit embarrassed I didn't think of that, actiually, as I've been studying (and even tracing) pictures of that castle for drawing practice and some calligraphy stuff :P

My first thought was {jem'IH} -> jem + 'IH = "feel pretty", so I wondered if perhaps whoever composed/performed "I Feel Pretty" was named Castle. They weren't.

Then I started thinking {jem'IH} -> HI'mej -> HImej -> "Go away!" ->


and I actually thought that was a possibility :P

I did not, but that is indeed very cool; thanks for sharing!

--"Isn't that inconsistent with the TNG episode "Heart of Glory"..."

Again, the rituals around death have already been shown to be inconsistently depicted (see "ak'voh," the practice of guarding a body over night so that the spirit might leave it in peace -- also performed by Worf). So who knows.

Also, did you know that the Taj Mahal is flanked by two identical, mirroring mosques that just aren't shown in most pictures? (reference: http://www.blankinship-web.com/sabbatical01/India/Taj_Mahal/taj-1.jpg). I just think that's cool.

Isn't that inconsistent with the TNG episode "Heart of Glory", in which the bodies of two Klingons who "died well" (in a battle with the Worf) are referred to as simply empty shells? IIRC (the Wikipedia article doesn't seem to discuss this) the Enterprise crew are told by the Klingon commander to simply dispose of the bodies by the most efficient means possible.
