I wouldn't have any issue with adding romanized Greek book names to 
locales or the master list of book abbreviations in Sword. Whether it 
would be useful depends on whether anyone would attempt to query a verse 
based on the Greek name, though.

It shouldn't be necessary to add these names to the OSIS book 
abbreviations wiki page since only unpredictable variant names are 
listed there. Variant names are only intended for informational purposes 
and won't necessarily be translated to code.
