What was Saint Peter's name before Peter changed it?

Simon Peter. There was another apostle named Simon, hence the change. Likewise there were two Saints James, so they styled them the Greater and the Lesser. Do not confuse with Simon Magus- Simon the magician or Magic Simon who was also something of an inventor and died testing out what we would now call a Hang Glider! He"s not in the Bible, but alluded to in apocryphal writings of the time. High hopes indeed.
