ⲛⲟϥⲣⲓ ⲟⲩⲟⲛ ⲛⲓⲃⲉⲛ! Let's discuss how should we render other religions' names.

The short list of major religions is:

  • Buddhism
  • Hinduism
  • Judaism
  • Zoroastrianism

I tend to use something like ⲙⲉⲧⲃⲟⲩⲇⲁⲥ, ⲙⲉⲧⲍⲱⲣⲟⲁⲥⲧⲣⲏⲥ and ⲙⲉⲧⲓⲟⲩⲇⲁⲓⲕⲟⲥ for Buddhism, Zoroastrianism and Judaism (although i'm not sure if this pattern fits fine here) but what should we use for Hinduism? ⲙⲉⲧϩⲉⲛⲧⲟⲩ is undistinguishable from language's name. --ⲡⲁⲣⲇⲁ (talk) 16:15, 24 June 2018 (UTC)Reply

For Zoroastrian, the word ⲍⲁⲣⲇⲟⲩϣⲧ and ⲍⲁⲣⲁⲇⲏⲥ are recorded. So we could say ⲙⲉⲧⲍⲁⲣⲇⲟⲩϣⲧ and/or ⲍⲁⲣⲁⲇⲏⲥ. Ϯⲙⲉⲗⲗⲓⲥⲏⲧ (talk) 07:11, 26 June 2018 (UTC)Reply
