[quote author=Unworthy1 link=topic=11828.msg141196#msg141196 date=1310358415]I think I remember discussing with someone how we should chant His Holiness' name and he said that Pope Shenouda preferred Shenouda. Not sure if that is accurate though.
Another thing, if "Coptic is Shenouda," then why do we say St. Shenouda the Archmandrite's name in Coptic as "Shenouti Pirachi Menedritis" in anything (e.g. hetennis, the sermon in pascha "Okati Khesis")?
with the Coptic "Shenouti." He may have been ordained "Shenouda" as some say but I'm pretty sure the ordination was done in Arabic, not Coptic. That's why he was called "Shenouda."
And it's not about getting permission from each bishop, it's about pronouncing the name properly according to the rules of the language.
another way to pronounce it in 1975 Old Bohairic, and another way to pronounce it pre-1975 Old Bohairic.
