Yeah! I think it is quite possible that the original 
writer used an older name for and that as the generations 
passed copyists employed the minor justifiable 
translation of place names such that readers would 
actually understand which place was being referenced. 
After all we don't know exactly when the text became so 
sacred that copyists started to insist on copying even 
the known errors.
