Merom is a Place in the Golan heights and also is the Hebrew word for a higher plane of existence or a level of heaven :P

i find that even tho the predicted price differential isn't that big (in Israel it will be larger tho, I'm sure of that, it always is) that DDRII is so damn cheap. its so cheap that you can get 8gb for less than the price of one 3x1 DDR3 kit o_0
In this case, Nehalem is named after a river in Oregon

DDR3 is certainly more expensive than DDR2, but it's not ridiculously high (X58 motherboards on the other hand...)
