This is interesting, and the possibility of names such as Alexander, Phillip, etc being non-Greek to begin with is likely. I have also wondered why everybody apart from the Greeks says, phonetically, Aleksandar - In Asia as Iskandar or Sikandar, and never Iskandros, Sikandros, etc. You would think, as a foreigner hearing the name of "Alexandros" for the first time, that the adaptation would be similar, ie; with an "os" suffix at least. But that is not the case.
