How to say a name in Greek?

From what I have gathered so far in my studies, I have found that personal names are even different in Greek. My name is John which is different in Greek. How would you say "Audra" in Greek? Would it be any differnt?

That is my wife's name by the way!

LXX versions

I know this may be a little off topic, somewhat. But I have just ordered Brentons LXX. I do know of Rahlfs, which is supposed to be really good.

SPIonic in MS Excel

I'm using Excel to keep a list of words that I'm learning. I'd like to have Excel sort the list alphabetically, and wonder if anyone has already worked out how to do this.

I’m having trouble with this sentence from H & Q Unit 8, I.13:

a)reth/ toi to\ pa=san xw/ran sw|=zon, w=) ge/ron.
