Why is it a thunderbolt and not a lightning bolt?

Should use Anglicised names in English sentences as it does for place names

So double p is not acceptable in english but it is used in the question and rejected in the answer

Not really specific to this example, but why is Iuppiter not translated to Jupiter?

They're avoiding translating names in all the lessons. Jupiter is accepted as a typed in answer though.
