    I don't see how you can have it both ways. If Enoch is the Hebrew rendering
    of E.Anna(k), then it cannot at the same time be the Hebrew rendering of
    En.(Och or whatever). As you know "E" means House; "En" means Master or Lord.
    I do not think you have made an academically sound case that "Enoch" is based
    on either word; but, in any case, it cannot be based on both of them at the
    same time.
