Name that reformer

A nearly infallible history of the Reformation by Nick Page gives the real names of those better known by other names. How many can you identify. Some are easy, some hard.

John Wiclef
Hierasmus Gerritzoon
Martin Luder
Andreas Rudolph Bodenstein
Huldrich Zwingle
Martin Butzer
Johann Hussgen
William Tindill
Jean Cauvin
Mine Simens
Philipp Schwartzerdt
Theodore de Besze
Jakod Hermanszoon

The answers to the hard ones in order are Karlstadt, Oecolampadius, Melanthon and Arminius. You work out the rest.
