I'm confused about His Beatitude's last name. There are a few hits for "Chrysostomos Englistriotis," (mostly German, from what little I can tell) and the French wikipedia page lists that as his last name as well. However, the English, Greek, and Russian wikipedia pages say he was born as "Herodotos Dimitriou" ... but the only hits for that seem to be pages copying wikipedia. The Church of Cyprus website does not seem to list any surname, nor does the Orthodox Research Institute. I will change the List of Patriarchs to point to this page, but it would be nice to have a definitive source. The earliest online source I can easily find is this, but there doesn't seem to be a definitive precedent for a last name there, either.

However, my husband seems to have unraveled this article at Cyprus Mail to indicate that Englistriotis is probably not the last name of Chrysostomos, but of another bishop (Nikiforos of Kykkos, with a brother archimandrite, Alexios). So we're guessing that his last name is Dimitriou. Any takers? —magda (talk) 18:36, September 12, 2007 (PDT)

If I had but waited. Here is what my husband found, and even in English, to say that the last name is Demetriou. It seems to be the village's website. —magda (talk) 18:41, September 12, 2007 (PDT)
