Random information on the term “Simon ___”:
May 9 (Eastern Orthodoxy)
Simon is a common name, from Hebrew שִׁמְעוֹן Šimʻôn, meaning “listen” or “hearing”. It is also a classical Greek name, deriving from an adjective meaning “flat-nosed”.:232 In the first century CE, Simon was the most popular male name for Jews in Roman Judea.
The Hebrew name is Hellenised as Symeon (Greek: Συμεών) in the Septuagint, and in the New Testament as both Symeon and, according to most authorities, Simon. Some commentators on the New Testament say that it could be a Hellenised form of the Hebrew Shim’on, but if not then it indicates that Peter came from a “Hellenistic background”; this was not unheard of in this era, as contemporary Jews such as Andrew the Apostle sometimes bore originally Greek names.:58
Simon is one Latinised version of the name, the others being Simeon or Symeon. This practice carried over into English: in the King James Version, the name Simeon Niger is spelt Simeon (Acts 13:1) as is Simeon (Gospel of Luke) (Luke 2:25), while Peter is called Simon (John 1:44).
