Choice of Verse for Name


What posuk does one choose at the end of shmonei esrei if one has two names? Do you use two pesukim? Or take the posuk that starts with the first initial of the first name and ends with the last initial of the second name?



  1. The accepted norm is to use the posuk for the first name unless the second name is the one that the person is known by. But, having said that, there is no reason why a person cannot recite two pesukim – one for each name.
