Title[edit]

If you zoom in on the entrance photo, the name of the Dr. is "DR. RAFAEL Ma. MOSCOSO". My understanding of Spanish titles is pretty much nil, so is the "Ma." more appropriately "M." to which the title has been changed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Heptazane (talkcontribs) 01:01, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

You may be correct. With Spanish surnames it was probably not a good idea to assume the Ma. was incorrect. I used the translation of the title from the page linked in the article. Would you consider asking around and looking it up more to decide what is correct and why before changing it back? At least for now, now that one possibly false move has already been made? --Blechnic (talk) 01:08, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, since the change has been made, I'm changing all of the "Ma."s to "M."s to be consistent. I believe this either is a valid abreviation of a family name, but if someone strongly disagrees, they can change it. Heptazane (talk) 16:17, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
