Religion-Names in Conlangs. Or At Least in Mine. :)

I've started thinking about religion names in Rokbeigalmki, and so far i
only have one:
yih.huda-tzat /jI hu da tsat/ = judaism
yih.hudaki /jI hu da ki/ = jew
For obvious reasons, that's the only one i have so far.
I'm trying to base the names as closely as possible on the religion's own
name for themselves, just like i (and many other people here) try to do
So, could someone help me with some others?
christianity: how was "christ" pronounced in ancient greek?
islam: which do people think, should i derive regularly "muslim" from
"islam", as _isla:m-tzat_ and _isla:mki_, or adopt the word "muslim" in
(the ":" represent a rising-accent over the previous vowel)
buddhism: how do you pronounce "buddha" in it's original language? do
buddhists call themselves the equivalent of "buddh-ists" in the original
language? is there an original language of buddhism? (you can see i
don't know that much about buddhism)
hinduism: pretty much the same questions as about buddhism
wicca: is it pronounced /'wI k@/ ?
Sorry if i forgot someone, this is the beginning of very long
