Hello! Have you ever wondered what the names of the paths in Mementos mean? Well, I'm here to answer that question, as most names seem to be Hebrew in origin, and Hebrew is my mother tongue.
So, Mementos goes like this: Qimranut Aiyatsubus Chemdah Kaitul Akzeriyyuth Adyeshach Sheriruth Iweleth
All these words mean something. From top to bottom:
Qimranut - distortion of the Hebrew word Chomranut, meaning materialism. Aiyatsubus - took some time to figure out. Distortion of the phrase Ee- yatsivut - meaning instability. Chemdah - not distorted at all this time, so this was the easiest. Means desire, and a related word in Hebrew, Chamdanut, means greed, avarice. Kaitul - This one is really distorted. Original word seems to be Keeoor, meaning ugliness. Not sure about that one. Akzeriyyuth - original word is Achzariyut. Meaning is Cruelty. Adyeshach - distorted from Adishut. Meaning is Apathy. Sheriruth - distorted from Shrirut. Meaning arbitrariness. Could also mean stubbornness. Iweleth - Meaning is stupidity.
This means, that in simple terms, Mementos is comprised of: Materialism Instability Desire Ugliness Cruelty Apathy Stubbornness Stupidity
Also, about the final dungeon - leave now if you don't want the name spoiled -
Qliphoth - derived from Klipot, literal meaning is shells, husks, peels. Also means "forces of evil", or "spirtual waste" in the Kabbalah, which is Jewish mysticism. I ain't a religious guy, so I don't know much beyond that.
And that's about it. You could have probably googled that yourself, but hopefully I saved you some trouble. Have a great day.
