St. Aristobulus-well I see he preached in Britain but no details of his martyrdom. I suspect that he disappeared because his name sounds like an incantation.

Preaching in Britain is martyrdom enough

I'm interested that you find the names difficult, I enjoy wrapping my tongue around strange foreign words. I thought when I came to the 'melting pot' that everyone would be practiced at names from all over the world. I was wrong. I don't know if I passed it on to my daughters by genetics or influence, particularly the firstborn, she loved to pronounce strange words when she was young. Middle daughter is a chameleon of speech, she gets embarrassed by her fast adaptation, she is bothered that they will think she's making fun of them. We have a friend from SC, and after an hour's visit, my daughter sounds more like her daughter than mine.

Oh it's not that I don't enjoy them, the peculiar ones stay in my head and then I play them over and over, practicing which way or what syllable to emphasize. After a while it gets a little weird.

Now my mother bless her heart is the one who has a tough time with Toyota, Mazda (she pronounces it the British way ) and other fairly common ones. She didn't study any languages in school and even though both her parents could stumble around in French she didn't pick up on that at all.

Seriously, I betcha there was a certain amount of self righteousness amongst those who had a good shot at sainthood. St Thomas a' Becket for one.

Becket was, in a sense, a convert, going from drunken womaniser to holy man, a case of the "office maketh the man".
