Looking for quasi-meaning in name combinations, just for fun.

 So, my old college created student email address by using the first three letter of someone's last name, followed by the first four letters of their first name.  So, for example, John Smith would be "smijohn".  Elaine Martin would be "marelai".   Victor Connors is my favorite fictional example -- he'd be "convict".

A. Would my school's system create any interesting email addresses for any of your names?  Any "convict"-esque ones out there; ones that actually have meaning in a language?

B. Mine was "bersumm", and I happened to do a Google search for it recently.  I found a few legit results that actually had to do with my email address, but I also found THIS cached page:

...with "bersumm" used as part of a language that is unidentifiable to me.  Does anyone know what language this is, and if so, any idea what "bersumm" translates as?
