'Isa or Jesus?

AOA everyone,

I googled "Isa Jesus" and the following article by Dr. Mark Durie was listed as the #2 search result:

Anyway, if you skip down to the section titled "Critical Comments on the Muslim ‘Isa (Jesus)", while the author poses several points against the Quranic portrayal of historical events, the one I'm especially curious about is where he states "Jesus’ name was never ‘Isa"

Would someone kindly be able to explain why the author's argument that the Quranic 'Isa is not the historical figure Jesus' is incorrect (as necessarily presumed to be the case)?
