No it's how it should be properly written, the 'b' sound in Greek is written with a mu (μ) and a pi (π), together they make the 'b' sound, however this rule does not hold true in English. The reason why Greek names are written this retarded way (like say, something beginning with a 'd' sound, being translated from Greek to English with the letters 'nt', totally different sound in English again) is because of an uneducated directive released by the Greek ministry of external affairs, how Greek words should be transliterated into English. So there you go.
