Answer by Emily
Charles Darwin and Christopher Colombus….just like normal.
Names don’t really translate into other laguages. For Example, if a woman from France named Jaqueline moved to America her name would still be Jaqueline. The reason people think that names translate is because some languages have names that are simillar, like Alejandro and Alexander. The only reason they are similllar is because the languages are very closely related (google search “world language tree diagram” to illistrate what I am saying.)
Anyway, the names you want are names based off of the Latin alphabet, and Arabic is not closely related to Latin, so there are no Arabic equivalents.
