Freeform Writing Exercise A2
Hola John y Clara,
The spelling in Spanish for the Three Wise Men are: Melchor, Gaspar andBaltasar.
I believe their English names are spelled differently:
Casper, Balthazar, and Melchior
I'm so pleased that you've asked this question as I had planned to ask the very same.
My surname is Melchor. In Spain although it is a surname, it's more commonly used as a christian name.
Like you,I have always thought that one of the 3 kings was 'Melcior'. I'm sure that the team will explain for us... I'm thinking that perhaps 'Melchor' is simply the Spanish spelling.
Great question! :)
Saludos y Feliz año nuevo
Por supuesto! A veces es tan obvio que no lo veo.
Gracias Inma. J
