How do the names of the biblical/religious figures translate over for the Eastern Churches? It is interesting to see how these names have evolved and established from their point origin.
Examples in the St. Thomas Christian Tradition:
Mary Magdalene: Magdala Mariam
It should be noted for the St. Thomas Christian tradition these names are all slightly changed at times when honorifics are added. For example when adding a male superior/elder honorific, Thoma becomes Thomachan. When adding a female inferior/younger honorific, Mariam becomes Marikutty.
