Cleopas

Cleopas [N] [E]

(of a renowned father ), one of the two disciples who were going to Emmaus on the day of the resurrection. ( Luke 24:18 ) Some think the same as Cleophas in ( John 19:25 ) But they are probably two different persons. Cleopas is a Greek name, contracted from Cleopater, while Cleophas, or Clopas as in the Revised Version, is an Aramaic name, the same as Alphaeus.
