This was sent to me by a friend who was taking a Hebrew class (Thanks, Amy H.) and I thought it had some interesting implications:
The name of God in Hebrew is “Elohim.” This word comes from the feminine singular word “eloah” (el-o’-ah). By adding “iym” to the end of it, it changes it to a plural name. However, “iym” is usually a masculine ending, yet here we see it added to a feminine word.
This gives the word “Elohim” the sense of uniting both feminine and masculine qualities. The idea of combining these two attributes suggests uniting of a man and woman, which would suggest the idea of a family.
