[b-greek] Why does IAKWBOS --> James?

Another beginner's question :

When I see the English versions of Greek names in the New Testament, most of
them seem reasonable to me: MARIA --> Mary, IAKWB --> Jacob, IWSHF -->
Joseph, PETROS --> PETER. But, IAKBOS --> James, seems a little strange to
me. Does anyone have a reasonable explanation for this association?
