Nobody knows. We dont even know if there were three. Traditionally, they were Gasphar, Melchor, and Balthazar.

their names were never specified in the bible nor the number of magi. It could have been 3 or 23, no one knows for sure.

The Three Magi are The Wise Men who were given the names Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar. And they go to bethlehem..

The question is to vague, there is no popularly known "tree magi" in most known religions. Are you sure [the questioner] that you didn't mean to type "three" magi?

The bible does not tell us the names of the magi who came to visit Jesus. At this period of time only God knows.

The Bible does not mention HOW MANY 'magi' there were or WHO they were, just that they were 'magi (astrologers) from the east' who came with gifts for a 'new king' they had heard about.(Matthew 2:1+2, 11)

Both the names and the number of Magi or Wise Men is not found in Scripture. It is part of the traditions of men.

Their names were Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar - known collectively as The Magi.(Magi is the plural of Magus -meaning 'wise man' from which we get the word 'magician'.)

Nothing in canonized scripture names the magi; there were probably far more than three.

The Scripture does not mention the names or the number of Wise Men (Magi) in Matthew 2. This is solely the traditions of mankind.

The "magi", the "Three Kings", or the "Kings From the East". According to documents from the later Greek, their names were * Gaspar, * Melchior * Balthasar
