Currently, the spelling for the Metropolis is "Lagkada," but I have come across other spellings of "Lagadas"[1] and "Langadas"[2]. The Orthodox Research Institute uses both "Lagadas"[3] and "Lagkadas"[4]; additionally, the metropolitan's last name there has only on L. "Lagkadas" is also the variant for the English-language version of the "Ecumenical Patriarchate Directory" in the GOARCH 2007 Yearbook, p. 60. I do not know what to do in this case, as none of the translations seem to be inescapably correct, nor their sources completely without typographical error.

Google hits vary for each:

  • Lagadas (8,660)
  • Lagkada (5,140)
  • Lagkadas (5,510)
  • Langadas (5,870)

Is there a metropolis webpage? —magda (talk) 12:45, March 7, 2008 (PST)
