Sheqel vs shekel


Glyphs names uni20AA as sheqel instead of shekel; looks like there is a typo in the name database.


The sign is called sheqel in the Unicode database. The currency is called shekel. So the typo is not on my part.

“Sheqel” is the Hebrew spelling and is the official version. “Shekel” is the unofficial spelling but seems to be preferred by most English-speakers.

So for unicode they went with the original spelling instead of the anglicized name… ok, its slightly confusing, but I guess they had their reasons…
