Do these small names we found in bible like Peter, Paul, Jesus, Christ used in Jerusalem or Israel 2000 years ago or are they just translations?
Since Jesus was not speaking English, what was his real name?
Is there any list of real names with English translations available from the original languages?
Can we actually translate a name? A simple change may be possible as the comment says Yeshua to Jesus. My actual question is if you look into the names in that area , they are much complex. Its not that simple names. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Israelis So the name should be more complex in old days; is it?
Do you think somebody translated to simple names to be practical and realistic and popular? Please suggest any materials if available.
