De-Nigorization in Japanese company names

The Yamaha company was founded by someone called Yamaba.
The Toyota company was founded by someone called Toyoda.

Note that in Japanese compounds, the initial consonant of the second
component is often softened: h becomes b, k becomes g, and t becomes d.
(That’s called "nigorization" by western Japanologists, from "Nigori" ‘two
dashes’, the diacritical in kana that expresses the softening)

So "Yamaba" is the standard way to build a compound out of "yama" and "ha",
and "Toyoda" of "toyo" and "ta".

So why did they drop the nigori for their company names?

Digraphs in old Czech spelling

I know that in pre-Husian Czech spelling digraphs were commonly used and
the name Czech was spelled just with "cz", as in present Polish and
English. This convention ("cz" for [tS]) is typical in Polish and weird
in English. Some dictionaries
(http://www.askoxford.com/concise_oed/czech?view=uk ,
http://education.yahoo.com/reference/dictionary/entry/Czech ) say that
English spelling is derived from Polish one, but is it true? When word
Czech appeared in English? Could it be in time, when it was Czech
spelling too?

All one needs to know about Christianity is right here –
the terrorist mission of Jesus stated in the Christian bible:

     "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not so send
peace, but a sword.
     "For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the
daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in
law.
     "And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
 - Matthew 10:34-36.

Is it really true that native English speakers cannot tell 'skill' and 'sgill' apart?

(assuming that the latter is a word).

I recently heard Arnold Schwartzenegger talking about the California
Budget and his ‘billion’ sounded like ‘pillion’ to me.

I understand that the peculiar aspiration of ‘p,t,k’ is what is used
to distinguish them from ‘b,d,g’ respectively which are never
aspirated in Englsh.

But then ‘s’ interferes with this and I don’t see how native speakers
can tell "worker’s day" apart from "worker stay" which can both
meaningfully occur after ‘make a ‘.

All in all, a very unsatisfactory state of affairs with respect to
these fundamental consonants of IE languages.

Meaning of "ad-Deir el-Bahri"

According to these web pages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deir_el-Bahri
http://www.ask-aladdin.com/hatshepsut.html
the Egyptian place-name "ad-Deir el-Bahri" means "The Northern
Monastery". Is this right? I’ve looked in Arabic dictionaries and I
can’t find "bahr" meaning "north". It only seems to mean "sea" or
"water".
