Matthew (IPA: ['mæθju]) is the standard English form of the New Testament name Μαθθαιος (Matthaios; in the Roman transliteration, two consecutive thetas are realized as "tth" - cf. "pph" in sapphire), a Greek transliteration of the Aramaic diminutive מתי (Mattay, Maty). From Latin Matthæus, the English spelling Matthew (earlier Matheu) comes directly from the French Matthieu. Ultimately derived from the Hebrew name מתתיהו (Matatyahu, Mattathias) or מתיתיהו (Matityahu, Mattithiah), Matthew means "gift of Yahweh". The Hebrew name is also spelled מתניהו (Matanyahu, Mattaniah). Related names include נתניהו (Netanyahu, Nethaniah), and with swapped syllables יהונתן (Yehonatan, Jonathan). The name is translated from hebrew meaning gift of the lord.

Whilst in English this is a single name space for most non-english languages this splits up into two separate name spaces. For example in the spanish language there is one name space around Matías and a second namespace around Mateo. The small but important difference here is the "i" letter in contrast to the "e" letter, often pronounced more like an english "a" or latin "ae". In German the splitting is based upon Matthias for the first space and Matthäus for the second space.[citation needed]

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. Matthew (753 words)
The name Matthew is derived from the Hebrew Mattija, being shortened to Mattai in post-Biblical Hebrew.
Matthew is spoken of five times in the New Testament; first in Matthew 9:9, when called by Jesus to follow Him, and then four times in the list of the Apostles, where he is mentioned in the seventh (Luke 6:15, and Mark 3:18), and again in the eighth place (Matthew 10:3, and Acts 1:13).
Matthew is represented under the symbol of a winged man, carrying in his hand a lance as a characteristic emblem.
Matthew@Everything2.com (1904 words)
Matthew was actually born with the name Levi and was the son of Alphaeus.
This emphasis seems well tailored for Matthew's presumed audience, a group of Jewish Christians who were involved in tense debate with members of the local synagogue and who needed an affirmation of their new identity as a people of God separate from the Jews and with a mission to all nations.
Matthew is a band that definitely does not receive the credit that it is due, but they are slowly shifting from the agressive Chicago underground scene to the national one.
