Anyone know what Fr. Ephrem's surname is? As it is, this article's name doesn't conform to our naming conventions (as it includes a title), nor does it distinguish this particular man from others who are known by the same name. —[[User:ASDamick|—Fr.

I added what I could find (of Philotheou) in the hopes of an article move, but haven't come across his surname. [[User:Magda|—magda (talk)]] 16:36, 22 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Surname of Father Ephraim

Father Ephraim doesn't have a one which is a monk has a surname.What happens is they have a first name only(which is a name of an otrhodox Saint)and if he is an elder father(spiritual father responsible for a monastery) then he uses the name of that monastery in order to show that he comes from the example of Father Ephraim, because he comes from Philotheou Monastery(in mount of Athos-Greece) then he is called as "Father Ephraim the Philotheitis)which means Father Ephraim from Philotheou monastery.

I hope you understand what I am trying to say...
