The article states two names: Patriarch Zakka and Patriarch Iwas.  Are they the same person?  confused.

The full name of the Patriach is H.H Ignatius Zakka Iwas. 
- Ignatius is the name assumed by all Patriarch's of Antioch in the Syriac tradition, commemorating the Ignatius who was installed as Bishop of Antioch by St. Peter.
- Zakka short for Zacchaeus is the given name of the Patriarch
- Iwas is his family name.
