First name[edit]

  • - This People magazine article [1] says: Moore was born Demetria Guynes in Roswell, N.Mex., and grew up as the older child—half brother Morgan is now 28 and a film technician—of Danny Guynes, a newspaper ad salesman, and his wife, Virginia. (Her mother, Moore has said, got the name Demetria from a beauty product she saw in a magazine.) but her whole name is not listed anywhere in the Wiki-page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.124.176.207 (talk) 02:31, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
If you click the link n-1 after her name in the lead it takes you to a footnote where sources like People are listed for Demetria whilst other sources such as Leonard Maltin say that it was only ever Demi. It also sources more recent comments by Moore where she states it was never Demetria. Stuart.Jamieson (talk) 07:43, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
And sources like The New York Times and the Encyclopedia Britannica say Demetria. I'm sure no one wants there to be WP:UNDUE here, of course. --Tenebrae (talk) 00:18, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

See most of Archive 1 and Archive 2 above for the discussion. This horse is dead, flogged and buried since long. Nymf hideliho! 08:30, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Amen. --Tenebrae (talk) 00:18, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
Oh Dear. I'm afraid I will have to disagree. Prior discussions: I've read the archives, and still don't see why you have chosen to leave out her full birth name. There have been dozens, if not hundreds, of print interviews giving Ms Moore's full name as Demetria Guynes. I assume that most interviewers requested and verified this information before printing it, and if not, there was never a denial or clarification from Ms Moore or her publicist after the articles were published. So her name stands as fact. But it seems that merely on the basis of one "tweet" from a twitter account, her true name was removed. I would also point out that Ms Moore has admittedly given false information in another case - for example, in this very Wikipedia article on her, it quotes Ms Moore's admission that she put "first marriage" on her marriage license form to Bruce Willis, not "second". Usually Wikipedia is the "go-to" source for accurate information, but in this case, the article is flawed. I would suggest you revisit this matter. 68.124.182.177 (talk) 10:18, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
No. AndyTheGrump (talk) 10:21, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
As you claim there are hundreds of sources for your claim then wikpedia is hardly the go to source for your claim - current consensus of discussion is that we are going with the subjects statement in the lede and a note later in the article. Youreallycan 10:25, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
I suggest we add a FAQ section at the top of the talkpage so we can address predictably repeating questions such as this one more efficiently. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 11:10, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
You took part in that discussion under various similar California AT&T 68.x.x.x IP's the discussion went against your position and restarting it is unlikely to change anything especially since you have nothing new to add to the discussion beyond calling Moore a liar. The archives do show that more than the basis of a single tweet - there were multiple tweets and many sources for Demetria had also stated Demi at other times - it wasn't clear and until it is clear it shouldn't go in.

High school[edit]

She also attended Redondo Union High School circa 1977, it has been reported. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.21.7.121 (talk) 23:23, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

If you tell us where it has been reported, we might be able to include this in the article - we don't however base articles on vague assertions from contributors. AndyTheGrump (talk) 23:36, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Pronunciation of last name[edit]

Does it rhyme with core or with lure? Can somebody add that piece of information? --88.70.214.25 (talk) 09:35, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Core. It's a common surname, see Moore (surname). Jim Michael (talk) 16:17, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
