M'gilas Ester is very clear about the name of the holiday (9:26):
עַל כֵּן קָרְאוּ לַיָּמִים הָאֵלֶּה פוּרִים
So they called these days F urim
Where does the current name of Purim come from?
- Is it, perhaps, simply a common mispronunciation? If so, is there any record of protests from great rabbis, encouraging people to call the holiday Furim?
- Or was the name officially changed at some point? When? By whom? Why?
- Or what?
