The church is often referred to as Jacobite (after Jacob Baradaeus) or Monophysite, but it rejects these names. In 2000, a Holy Synod ruled that the name of the church in English should be the "Syriac Orthodox Church." Before this it was, and often still is, known as the "Syrian Orthodox Church." The name was changed to disassociate the church from the polity of Syria. The official name of the church in Syriac is ʻIdto Suryoyto Triṣut̲ Šub̲ḥo [in rom.]; this name has not changed, nor has it changed in any language other than English)
