Syriac and Aramaic are the same thing. The people we know today as Syriac are the same as the Arameans of the Bible who inhabited the land of Aram (Syria), and Aramaic is their language. They were once known as Arameans, but somewhere along the line the land became known as Syria, and the people Syrians, and the language Syriac. Because, in English, "Syrian" now denotes a resident/citizen of the Syrian Arab Republic, the term "Syriac" is used for these people, since it is not a nationality, but an ethnicity. So Syriac and Aramaic are one and the same.
