Where do the Three Wise Men get their names?


#1

My wife and kids and I can’t find any Scriptural basis for the names of the Wise Men. Where do the names come from?

Any ideas?

Yes I would say that it is (t)radition. That is tradition with a small t. It like the name of the good theif and the parent of Mary.
