Talk:Theophilus III (Giannopoulos) of Jerusalem

Revision as of 13:03, August 24, 2005 by ASDamick (talk | contribs)

"Jannopoulos"? There's no "j" in Greek or anything like it. The referenced page also lists his birth name as "Ilija," which is also extremely unlikely for a Greek. My guess is that we're looking at Latinizations of Russifications of a Greek name. I'd put my money on "Elias Iannopoulos" or "Elias Yiannopoulos." —[[User:ASDamick|—Fr.

i noticed the Ilija bit, which i would assume to be Elias; my bet is that it's Yiannopoulos. it's possible that it's Tzannopoulos, but i wouldn't think so (based on where he's from, ie the mainland). but, i can't be sure; and what i've seen, neither of them are reported. oea 01:34, 24 Aug 2005 (EDT)
I'm going to change it to Elias Yiannopoulos, as I think that's probably the best guess. —[[User:ASDamick|—Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!)]] 09:03, 24 Aug 2005 (EDT)
