Because most of these are transliteration of the name in Hebrew, I have transliterated as best I can and added as many varitations as I can think of. Should you have more, please leave them for me in the comments section and I will be happy to add them.

Would you accept more spellings for Chanuka? I tried Chanukkah and Hanukkah. Can't believe I forgot Passover.

Fair point, I tried to put in as many spellings as I could think of, I have added the ones you provided, thanks for the additions. That's one of the tough parts of transliteration, it all depends how people read it in the original. I hope it is now more 'user friendly' Thanks for the feedback

Sorry, I tried putting in all the spellings that I could think of (forgot the k instead of c), please feel free to tell me any other additions that you think would be good. Sukkot and Sukot will now work. Thanks for the constructive criticism. On a personal note, I don't know if you saw, but I would have been honoured to meet you when you came to Israel, but it looks like I missed the boat. Enjoy your trip.
