[interviewer]: If I remember correctly, ArtScroll started off publishing fancy high-end kesubos… N[osson] S[cherman of ArtScroll]: Yes, ArtScroll’s name came from that. Meir Zlotowitz had a company that was involved in such printing.
דוד is referring to King David. דויד is referring to Moshiach ben David specifically as Melech HaMoshiach. This is brought in Kol HaTor 2: 2. This is also brought in Be'er Yitzchok on Likkutei HaGra 63.
In hebrew the letter sound for 'B' and 'V' are the written using the same letter - 'Bet'. Leib is a transliteration of LEV - or heart. In addition, Hebrew adjectives follow nouns which is vice versa to English. So you and I would write in English, "he is a clever boy" but the Hebrew translation would read "he is a boy clever". Hence, Ariyeh Leib - ...
The reason is because of david's friendship with Jonathan. A yud was added to David's name and a 'hei' to Jonathan's. To show that their great friendship had hashem's blessing. Since these were 'additions' one doesnt use them in spelling their names. Although R Yehonasan Eibeshuts did add the 'hei'. I will have to look for the source.

R. Aryeh Kaplan, in his article "Reverence of the Sacred," writes that י-ו is written as טז, not because it's a divine name (unlike י-ה, which Avot DeRabbi Natan 34:2 and others write is actually a biblical name of God).

See this page Both Yehuda and Yitzhak are listed. Many Siddurim such as Art Scroll have a list of verses for all Hebrew names. See the rules in the next paragraph. Technically, any verse that starts with the 1st letter of your Hebrew name and ends with the last letter of your Hebrew name is valid. There may be more than one verse fitting that criteria for ...
I think I know what book you're referring to as it's sitting on the bottom of my shelf at home, but offhand I couldn't remember what it was called. I did some googling to see if I could find the title, and came across some other options (as well as a different question on this site that might also answer your question). There is an English Artscroll book ...
We have the Gemara in Megilla 27b mentioning refraining from calling someone by a nickname as a virtue of a Tzaddik. Seemingly, it is nice not to do it but not terrible if you do. Then we have the Gemara in Bava Metzia 58b saying that one who calls his friend a derogatory name won't leave Gehenom even if the person is used to it already. Probably, the ...
"Mashiach ben David" is far from David's son. It seems to mean "descendent". Every king in Jerusalem from Shelomo to Tzidqiyahu would qualify. To develop Rashi's second answer -- Shelomo haMelekh was the only king to do the mitzvah of haqhel. David predates the Beis haMiqdash, and after he dies, the Northern Kingdom splits off and bans its inhabitants from ...
