Old Radical Name Comparison

What are the old names of the radicals compared to the new ones? (e.g. Nailbat vs. Fingers)

Edit: Thank you for the solution!

Soul used to be fish stick. Good luck used to be longcat.

Gladiator was always gladiator

PS on the WK homepage you can go to Menu —> Settings —> App and scroll down for the option to display the old mnemonics, that’ll let you see the old radical names for items if they were changed
