As Ivayla said, Jesus was called Yeshua/Eeshoi and Peter called Shimoon Cepha.
The rest (according to my Aramaic New Testament):
Andrew: Endreeyoos (Andreous looked better, but was a little misleading)
James (son of Zebedee): Yakoob
Bartholomew: Bar Tolmai
Matthew: Mattai Matchsa (never heard the last part before)
James, son of Alphaeus: Yakoob bar Khilpeh
Thaddeus: Levi, called Tadee (some dialects: Addai)
Simon the Zealot: Shimoon Qninya
Judas Iscariot: Yehudeh Sicriodta
Sorry that it looks so crazy...I did my best to transliterate, although not all of these are the "standard" accepted transliterations. I tried to get as close as possible.
*edited to change a couple of spellings*
*note: Jacob and James are both Yaqoob/Yakoob in Aramaic
