However Latin is Latin. Greek is Greek. We haven't changed it, and still called it Latin.
The only reason Latin doesn't change is because nobody speaks it any more. It's dead, and is now frozen.
All real, living languages change, morph and evolve endlessly. Tell me, do you still "fardels bear" over there in England? (from Hamlet). Do you find it difficult to choose "betwixt" two alternatives? Do you describe yourself as "gay" when you're feeling happy? Do you visit your "eldfather" on a regular basis?
Old words, old spellings, become obsolete and new ones arise. Languages vary by region, eventually becoming new languages. There's no clear-cut boundary between dialect and language.
But anyway, I digress...
