I always thought the Vulcan sign was from the Hebrew word "Chai," which is the same hand shape held palm down over your child's head while you pray, representing the word for "life." Especially since the Vulcan form means "Live long and prosper."

I already knew the one about the ta'al (the Vulcan hand salute). I`m a Trek geek, so I went searching Youtube for videos and there`s one where Nimoy talks about it. :D
