Talk:Laurus (Škurla) of New York

Metropolitan Laurus was born Василий Михайлович Шку́рла. I realize that it is met most often on the internet as transliterated Skurla, but the proper phonetic spelling (which is found in certain sources) is Shkurla. The ROCOR website spells it this way in its history of Holy Trinity Monastery: Alexeykh

Many names are anglicised upon moving to English-speaking countries. This seems to be an example of that. Considering he spent a significant portion of his life in such a country (and was bishop there), it seems right to keep his name as it is conventionally spelt. — by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 00:56, May 3, 2011 (UTC)
Again a non-English alphabet on an English language site!! Only the English language alphabet should be used on this site except when the foreign language is cited in special citations. Wsk 10:14, April 23, 2012 (HST)
Non-English latin characters are used in English texts. For example, we can see the Wikipedia. ~ Чръный человек 03:08, April 25, 2012 (HST)
